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

773. Keep Me, My Lord

1 Keep me in touch with Thee,
My blessed Lord;
Thine shall the glory be,
Mine the reward;
Cover my soul with grace,
In that most holy place,
Till I shall see Thy face,
Keep me, my Lord.

2 Lord, with Thy gentleness,
I would be great;
Blest with Thy holiness,
Be this my state;
To Thee my all resign,
Oh, let Thy will be mine,
In Thy great love divine,
Keep me, my Lord.

3 Conquer my every foe,
While here I stay;
Unto the end I’ll go,
Let me not stray;
Down into nothingness,
Hid in Thy righteousness,
Firm in Thy faithfulness,
Keep me, my Lord.

4 Oh, let Thy watchful eye,
Be over me;
Hear Thou my humble cry,
Coming to Thee;
Guide Thou my steps aright,
Be Thou my song at night,
My theme and heart’s delight,
Keep me, my Lord.
