Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1037. Jesus, Help Me

1 Jesus, keep me every day,
When I work and when I play,
When I think and when I talk,
When I run and when I walk.

Refrain:
Keep me, Jesus, this I pray,
Lead me, keep me, every day.

2 Jesus, make me good and true
In the work I ought to do;
Hold me gently by the hand,
Till I reach the better land. [Refrain]

3 Blessed Jesus, let us know
How our busy feet should go;
Till at last in heav’n we say:
Jesus led us all the way. [Refrain]
