Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Abide with me, my Savior dear,
And soothe this troubled heart,
It makes me glad to have thee near,
And feel how kind thou art.

O Master, blessed, good and true,
Let me thy beauty, beauty see,
Thy precious words are ever new,
Dear Christ, abide with me.

2 I could not keep the narrow way,
If I could walk alone;
Oh, guide my feet through all the day,
My hand hold in thy own. [Refrain]

3 This world would be a dreary place,
And life a burden long,
Without thy sweet and tender grace,
Which fills our souls with song. [Refrain]
