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, 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 would ever follow Thee,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
Thou art more than life to me,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
As a child I would believe,
And Thy gift of grace receive;
Let me ne’er Thy Spirit grieve,
Christ my all; Christ, my all.

2 In Thy word is my delight,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
‘Tis my comfort day and night,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
Where Thou leadest, I will go,
Tho’ the way I may not know;
Thou the path of peace wilt show,
Christ my all; Christ, my all.

3 Thou didst give Thyself for me,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
Help me now to live for Thee,
Christ my all; Christ, my all;
Time is flying fast away,
Soon will close life’s fleeting day;
Let me labor while I may,
Christ my all; Christ, my all.
