Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Full Text

1 Abide with me, I need Thee ev'ry day,
To lead me safe through all the weary way;
When storms surround and only clouds I see,
Lord, be my comfort and abide with me!

2 Be with me, Lord, where’er my path may lead,
Fulfill Thy Word, supply my ev'ry need;
Help me to live each day more close to Thee,
And oh, dear Lord, I pray, abide with me!

3 Abide with me, my Lord, and when at last
This earth and all its weary cares are past,
I’ll pray no more that Thou abide with me,
For then, at last, I shall abide with Thee!
