We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Ev’ry hour I need Thy blessing,
Ev’ry moment need Thy care,
Lord, to Thee I come confessing,
All the sins that me ensnare.
Bless the thoughts that come each moment,
Make them true and pure and fair,
Like to Thine our great atonement,
Beautiful beyond compare.

Come, O come Thou loving Saviour,
Take me in Thy tender care,
Watch and guide me ev’ry moment,
And my soul for Thee prepare.

2 Ev’ry hour I need Thy blessing,
Daily need Thy wondrous love,
Love so tender, so protecting,
Coming from Thy throne above.
For Thy loving care and blessing,
Make me thankful day by day,
By my walk and daily living,
Praising Christ the Living Way. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry hour I need Thy blessing,
Ev’ry moment need Thy care,
Until Thou my soul possessing,
Shall reflect Thine image there.
Then to Christ the King of Glory,
He who bought me with great price,
I shall sing the old, old story,
Christ my Lord, my sacrifice. [Refrain]
