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

443. Keep Me

1 In this wicked world am I,
Watch Thou o’er me from on high;
Keep my soul, lest I should be
Led astray, O Lord, from Thee.

Refrain:
All I am or hope to be,
I commit, dear Lord, to Thee;
Oh, preserve me in Thy love,
Till I reach Thy courts above.

2 Keep me spotless, keep me pure,
Keep me lest the world allure;
Keep me in Thy secret place,
Where I e’er may see Thy face. [Refrain]

3 Keep me guiltless night and day,
Help me Thy commands obey;
Keep me humble, let not pride
Ever in my soul abide. [Refrain]

4 Keep me gentle, let no word
From my lips be ever heard
That shall wound a tender heart,
Cause a tear of grief to start. [Refrain]

5 Keep me for Thyself alone,
Nevermore to be mine own;
Keep me in Thy favor sweet,
In Thy grace and truth complete. [Refrain]
