Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

I find each day new victory

Full Text

1. I find each day new victory,
When Jesus has control,
And blessings that are sent to me,
When Jesus has control.

Refrain:
When Jesus has control,
When Jesus has control;
He leads the way from day to day,
When Jesus has control.

2. I find new joys unknown before,
When Jesus has control,
And peace abiding more and more,
When Jesus has control.

3. I find new strength to conquer wrong,
When Jesus has control,
And blessings with the victor’s song,
When Jesus has control.

4. I find new light upon my way,
When Jesus has control,
To light and guide me day by day,
When Jesus has control.

5. I look beyond life’s unknown sea,
When Jesus has control,
And see the Homeland waiting me,
When Jesus has control.

He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
