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 I need thee every hour,
Lord of all might and power,
Lord of all might and power,
Hear this my cry,
Hear this my cry.
I know no help but thee,
Thou shalt my refuge be,
Oh, come and dwell with me,
Do not deny,
Do not deny.

2 I need thee every hour,
When storms and darkness lower,
When storms and darkness lower,
With me abide,
With me abide.
Jesus, my light appear,
Let not distrust and fear,
But faith and love endear,
When woes betide,
When woes betide.

3 I need thee every hour,
When pain and grief have power,
When pain and grief have power,
I come to thee,
I come to thee.
Oh, make me thine indeed,
On husks no more I’ll feed,
Thou shalt my footsteps lead,
I come to thee,
I come to thee.
