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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 From day to day I need the tender care
Of Him, who always notes the sparrow’s fall;
And, oh, how sweet it is for me to feel
That He will hear me when to Him I call.

I need my Father’s care, I need his tender care,
For oft my weary way grows rough and dim;
But love divine I know, will never, never fail,
And it is sweet to trust in him.

2 More valued in my Father’s loving sight
I know this life of mine must surely be,
Than is the bird or flow’r so small and frail;
Then will he not in love remember me? [Refrain]

3 I need his care and I will ever claim
In faith the help each day and hour demands,
Whate’er the span of life to me may bring,
I gladly leave it in my Father’s hands. [Refrain]
