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

1 Let my life be hid in Thee,
Life of life and Light of light!
Love’s illimitable Sea!
Depth of peace and power the height!
Let my life be hid in Thee
From vexation and annoy;
Calm in Thy tranquility,
All my mourning turned to joy.

2 Let my life be hid in Thee
When alarms are gathering round,
Covered with Thy panoply,
Safe within Thy holy ground.
Let my life be hid in Thee;
In the world, and yet above;
Hid in Thine eternity,
In the ocean of Thy love.

Amen.
