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.

Representative Text

1 Every day I need Thee more and more,
Waves of care sweep o’er my soul,
Thou canst still the storm and peace restore,
Keep my life in Thy control.

Every day I need Thee more and more,
For my heart is tempted o’er and o’er,
Let me feel Thy mighty arm,
Safely keep me from all harm,
Every day I need Thee more and more.

2 Every day I need Thee more and more,
Make my blinded eyes to see,
Visions of the Christ whom I adore,
Hear my cry, O Lord, help me. [Refrain]

3 Every day I need Thee more and more,
For the helpless, sick and lone;
Piteously plead and help implore,
Use me Lord to lead them home. [Refrain]

4 Every day I need Thee more and more,
When earth’s shadows all are past,
Then I’ll dwell with him forevermore,
Fearing neither storm nor blast. [Refrain]
