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.
Harry Plantinga

Give us this day our daily bread. You said You would supply all my needs

Representative Text

Give us this day our daily bread.
You said you would supply all my needs
according to your riches.
I have but to ask and I shall receive.
To go from here and share this love you gave to me,
to show someone who's lost and help them find their way,
the way to truth and faith so they can be free like me,
free like me. Lord, we need your love.
Lord, we need your peace.
Lord, we need your joy
Thank you for this day.
Lord, we thank you for this day.
