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

Representative Text

1. How strong and sweet my Father's care
That round about me like the air
Is with me always, everywhere!
He cares for me.

2. O keep me ever in thy love,
Dear Father, watching from above;
And as through life my steps shall move,
O care for me.

3. Dear God and Father, let me know
Thy love will guide me where I go;
And let my heart forever glow
With love to thee.
