Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When the morn is bright and fair;
When thy heart is filled with gladness;
And thou knowest not a care;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
All thy daily joy to share.

2 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When the cloudy day is near,
When thou art by cares surrounded,
And thy path seems long and drear;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
May he keep thy heart from fear.

3 God be with thee, God be with thee,
When amidst the wintry blast,
When the sky is dark and gloomy,
And thy strength is failing fast;
God be with thee, God be with thee,
Keep thy soul in perfect peace.
