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

1 Each day in sweet communion,
With Jesus now I rise,
And find His service ever
A glad and sweet surprise;
Though what each day is bringing
My soul may never guess,
Yet to His cross I’m clinging,
And on my way I press.

2 And day by day I’m learning
That though my earthly way
Is oft through shadows winding,
’Twill lead to perfect day;
Each day I know I’m resting
Within His sheltering arms;
My heart, this thought enfolding,
Is safe from earth’s alarms.

3 So trusting in His mercy
And love so measureless,
Each day my soul is fuller
Of peace and joyfulness;
Each day, while life is given,
Still stronger would I be,
Till from on high my Savior
Shall say, Come home with Me."
