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

Almighty God, I humbly ask

Almighty God, I humbly ask

Author: J. H. Kuhlmann
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Almighty God, I humbly ask
That I may know my daily task,
To do Thy holy will.
Be Thou, throughout the journey's length,
O Lord, my never-failing strength,
In days of good or ill.

2 Help me, that I may never shirk,
But always look upon my work
As coming, Lord, from Thee;
And may, in doing well my part,
This holy thought inspire my heart:
Thou, Father, sendest me!

3 Then equal to the noblest strife
Shall be the lot of lowly life,
Which ne'er from duty swerves;
And he, who self has sacrificed,
Is walking in the steps of Christ,
Whose love forever serves.
