We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
