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.

Representative Text

1 Ev’ry hour for Jesus, who bled and died for me,
Living now to make me from sins dominion free;
Guided by His Spirit, abiding in His love,
Ev’ry footstep leading to better things above.

Ev’ry hour, ev’ry hour,
Rest, and victory, and pow’r,
Ev’ry hour for Jesus kept by grace divine,
Saviour, blessed Saviour, may this life be mine.

2 From the hand of Jesus, the golden moments fall,
Let them be devoted to Him who bought them all;
Hours so dearly purchased are not for self alone,
But to help our neighbor, and make the Master known. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry hour for Jesus, the bitter with the sweet,
Thorns as well as roses, till home at last, we meet;
What a blest forever together we shall spend,
Praising our Redeemer, whose praises never end. [Refrain]
