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 In Thy perfect peace divine,
Keep, O keep me ever;
Where my faith will brightest shine,
Keep, O keep me ever.

Let Thy heart my dwelling be,
Let Thy word abide in me;
In the path that leads to Thee,
Keep, O keep me ever.

2 At my post of duty still
Keep, O keep me ever;
Learning there Thy righteous will,
Keep, O keep me ever. [Refrain]

3 ‘Neath Thy all protecting wings,
Keep, O keep me ever;
By the soul refreshing springs,
Keep, O keep me ever. [Refrain]

4 Till my last expiring breath,
Keep, O keep me ever;
Thine in life, and Thine in death,
Keep, O keep me ever. [Refrain]
