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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I want to be like Him—like Jesus, I do;
For He is the One who will carry me thro’;
Temptations and sin by His grace fade away,
For Jesus is keeping me day by day.

Refrain:
Jesus is keeping me day by day,
Oh, how His majesty brightens my way!
Each moment, each hour, I am kept by His power,
For Jesus is keeping me day by day.

2 I want to be like Him—abide in His love;
For Jesus, ‘twas He, left His bright home above,
To die on the cross and my sins wash away,
For Jesus is keeping me day by day. [Refrain]

3 I want to be like Him—and serve Him each day;
For Jesus will keep me from straying away,
If I will but trust Him, yes, trust and obey—
For Jesus is keeping me day by day. [Refrain]
