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.

Representative Text

1 I’m Jesus’ little trusting child,
I need him ev’ry day,
To shield me from temptations wild—
I’ll not forget to pray.

I’ll not forget to pray,
I’ll not forget to pray;
To Jesus I’ll bear my every care;
I’ll not forget to pray.

2 I thank him for his loving care,
That angels near me stay;
At evening shall ascend my pray’r—
I’ll not forget to pray. [Refrain]

3 And ev’ry morn, before I start
Upon another day,
I’ll ask the Lord to keep my heart—
I’ll not forget to pray. [Refrain]

4 Or should some trial come apace
I’ll hasten then away,
To ask the Lord for strength and grace—
I’ll not forget to pray. [Refrain]
