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, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Help me, Lord, by thy great power

Help me, Lord, by thy great power

Full Text

1 Help me, Lord, by Thy great power,
Help me fight the bitter fight;
Go with me when tempests lower,
Leave me neither day nor night;
Weak of will, O Christ, I need Thee
When upon the brink I stand;
I may fall; but, Savior, lead me:
Hold me by Thy pow'rful hand.

2 O how blest if when around me
Close the dark'ning shades of night,
I might say when death has found me.
I have fought a winning fight;
I have kept the faith victorious;
Finished is my course of strife;
And before me shines all glorious
My reward, the crown of life.
