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, O my Saviour,
Life’s rugged path to cheer;
No evil can befall me,
When Thou, O Lord art near.

Tho’ oft by sore temptation
My heart oppressed may be,
Yet, leaning on Thy promise,
I’ll trust alone in Thee.

2 I need Thee, O my Saviour,
To chide me when I stray,
To keep me ever walking
Within the narrow way. [Refrain]

3 I need Thee, O my Saviour,
Thou precious Friend divine;
No smile so full of sunshine,
No love so great as Thine. [Refrain]
