Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 “Kept by His pow’r”—no human arm upholding,
No human hand outstretch’d to point the way;
But God’s great love, His feeble child enfolding,
Is all-sufficient for thy need each day.

Refrain:
Kept by the pow’r of God unto salvation,
Ready to be revealed, revealed in the latter day,
Kept by the pow’r of God unto salvation,
Ready to be revealed in the latter day.

2 “Kept by His pow’r”—when sun is brightly shining
And glory crowns thy pathway with its light;
“Kept by His pow’r”—when daylight is declining,
And length’ning shadows tell of coming night. [Refrain]

3 “Kept” when the world for Thee its smile is wreathing,
When skies are fair, and life with roses spread;
“Kept” when its frown to Thee it is bequeathing
And clouds are massing darkly over head. [Refrain]

4 His pow’r to keep is strong and true as ever,
No length of years can e’er its force abate;
His will to keep can never fail—no, never;
While Mercy stands at heav’n’s wide-open gate. [Refrain]
