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.

1 Lord and Saviour, true and kind,
Be the Master of my mind;
Bless, and guide, and strengthen still
All my powers of thought and will.

2 Let Thy gracious presence rule
All I think and speak at school;
Keep me faithful, prompt, and keen,
At Thy side, my King unseen.

3 Here I train for life's swift race;
Let me do it in Thy grace;
Here I arm me for life's fight;
Let me do it in Thy might.

4 Thou hast made me mind and soul;
I for Thee would use the whole;
Thou hast died that I might live;
All my powers to Thee I give
