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.

Representative Text

1 Keep your covenant with Jesus,
‘Tis the least that you can do;
For He died for your salvation,
And He always has been true.
He has been your guide and helper,
He has been a faithful Friend,
And you never can repay Him,
Tho’ you serve Him to the end.

Keep your covenant with Jesus,
To your pledge be ever true,
For He gave Himself your ransom;
Yes, He died, He died for you.

2 Tho’ we give our dearest treasure,
‘Tis a trifle we bestow;
Tho’ we mete with largest measure,
‘Tis but little we can show.
But He sees the good intention,
And the loyal, loving will,
And by giving Him our utmost,
We may each His charge fulfill. [Chorus]

3 What are all our cares and burdens?
They are shadows dimly cast;
They will fade and quickly vanish,
If we hold our promise fast.
We can smile at all our losses,
We can welcome toil and pain;
If we keep our pledge with Jesus,
None of these will be in vain. [Chorus]
