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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Jesu, keep me day by day

Representative Text

1. Jesus, keep me day by day
In the straight and narrow way;
Snares around my feet are set,
Watch me, lest I may forget.

2. Jesus, help me when I call,
When I fear that I may fall;
Guard my steps lest I should go
In the downward path to woe.

3. Jesus, make me pure within,
Wash my heart from every sin,
So each tho't and act may be
Pleasing, blessed Lord, to thee.

4. Jesus, save me by and by,
When thou comest in the sky,
May I see thy glorious face,
With thy people have a place.
