Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 I love Him each day far better
Than ever I’ve loved Him before;
I’m learning the blessed secret
Of trusting Him more and more.

Refrain:
I love Him each day far better
Than ever I’ve loved Him before;
I’m learning the blessed secret
Of trusting Him more and more.

2 My joy is a nameless glory,
The star of my Hope brighter grows;
The soul of my life is Jesus,
The Conq’ror of all my foes. [Refrain]

3 I hold with Him sweet communion,
And more of His beauty I see;
The windows of Heaven open,
Revealing His face to me. [Refrain]
