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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1. Have I spoken words of love,
Or selfish have I gone?
Have I made some blackness white,
Or sung a cheerful song?
Have I brought a smile of hope,
Or wiped sad tears away?
Have I done a single thing
In Jesus’ name today?
Father, in penitence pleading,
Forgiveness I ask not in vain;
Tomorrow, if spared thro’ Thy mercy,
I’ll serve Thee again and again.
I’ll lift up the bruisèd and fallen,
I’ll lead the blind to the light;
For today I’ve done nothing for Jesus—
Hold me close in Your arms tonight.

2. Have I held the Savior’s face
Enshrined within my heart?
Have I lived for gain of gold,
My life absorbed in mart?
Have I visited the sick,
Their fever to allay?
Have I done a single thing
In Jesus’ name today?
Father, in penitence pleading,
Forgiveness I ask not in vain;
Tomorrow, if spared thro’ Thy mercy,
I’ll serve Thee again and again.
I’ll lift up the bruisèd and fallen,
I’ll lead the blind to the light;
For today I’ve done nothing for Jesus—
Hold me close in Your arms tonight.

3. Traveler worn with weary feet,
Behold the Master’s face;
Sin-sick soul, all tempest torn,
Repose in His embrace;
Weary ones, heart-aching ones,
Behold, His is the way,
Let me lead you to the Christ
In Jesus’ name today.
Father, Thy name I have spoken,
I’ve walked close beside Thee all day,
I’ve clung to the hem of Thy garment,
In fear lest I lose my way.
I’ve told others that sweet old story
From Heav’n they’ve seen Thy light;
Today I’ve done something for Jesus,
Let me rest in His arms tonight.
