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

869. One Thing I Can Do

1 I thank Thee, Lord, that I can cast
My burdens all on Thee;
Though I be tempted, Thou has died
To bear them all for me.

Refrain:
O Jesus, I will cling to Thee,
I’ll love Thee more and more;
I’ll place my trembling hand in Thine
Until the battle’s o’er.

2 Though tried and pressed, yet I will trust,
This one thing I can do;
I’ll lean upon Thy loving breast,
Thou’lt guide me safely through. [Refrain]

3 Though raging storms about me sweep,
And fiery billows roll,
To Thee, dear Lord, I humbly trust
The keeping of my soul. [Refrain]
