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

In truth and grace I want to grow

Representative Text

1 In truth and grace I want to grow
Like Jesus, day by day;
And scatter sunshine where I go,
Along my pilgrim way.

Like Jesus, like Jesus,
I want to be like Jesus;
I love Him so, I want to grow
Like Jesus, day by day.

2 I want to live a life of love
Like Jesus, day by day;
And point some soul to heav’n above,
Along my pilgrim way. [Refrain]

3 I want to do some kindly deed
Like Jesus, day by day;
And for His kingdom sow the seed
Along my pilgrim way. [Refrain]
