Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Looking to Jesus! this my watchword be,
At every footstep of my Christian race;
Fountain of every good! I look to thee,
And trust for every help, for every grace.

Looking to Jesus!
Looking to Jesus!
Looking to Jesus for every help and grace!

2 Looking to Jesus, I attain to peace,
Looking to Jesus, I advance in strength;
Looking to Jesus, faith and love increase,
And hope grows stronger all my journey's length.

3 Looking to Jesus, I can scarce perceive
The toils and dangers of my earthly way;
There may I ever look, till I receive
His welcome where his presence makes the day.
