During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Keep Me, O God of Grace

Representative Text

1 Keep me, O God of grace; from ill defend me;
my trust in thee I place; do thou befriend me;
thou art the Lord most high; save thee no good have I;
when sorrows multiply, thy peace attend me.

2 My goodly heritage thou, Lord, maintainest;
from childhood unto age my lot maintainest;
thy wisdom doth impart instruction to my heart;
thou who almighty art, to guide me deignest.

3 By thee my soul is blest with joy o'erflowing;
in confidence I rest, thy mercy knowing;
Lord, from the silent grace thou wilt thy servant save,
that life for which I crave at last bestowing.
