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 In this life of pitfalls and dangers
We should be tender and true;
Ever trying to let our light shine,
And be Christians through and through.

We should go where our Master calls us,
And do what He’d have us do;
Trusting for strength in Him always,
And the grace that will carry us through.

2 A kind word lovingly spoken
May cheer a faint heart by the way;
Let us not be one-day Christians,
But be Christlike every day. [Refrain]

3 There are words that should be unspoken,
And deeds that were best undone,
If we would be like the Savior
And a crown with stars be won. [Refrain]
