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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full 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]
