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.

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

1 I cannot do great things for Him,
Who did so much for me,
But I would like to show my love,
Dear Jesus, unto Thee,
Dear Jesus, unto Thee,
Dear Jesus unto Thee;
Faithful in ev’ry little thing,
O Savior, may I be.

2 There are small things in daily life,
In which I may obey,
And thus may show my love to Thee,
And always ev’ry day,
And always ev’ry day,
And always ev’ry day
There are some loving little words,
Which I for thee may say.

3 There are small crosses I may take,
Small burdens I may bear,
Small acts of faith and deeds of love,
Small sorrows I may share,
Small sorrows I may share,
Small sorrows I may share,
And little bits of work for Thee,
I may do ev’rywhere.

4 And so I ask Thee, give me grace,
My little place to fill,
That I may ever walk with Thee,
And ever do thy will,
And ever do thy will,
And ever do thy will,
And in each duty, great or small,
I may be faithful still.
