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, make today one day for thee;
Lead, lest I stray, O lead thou me;
Give faith to trust when naught I see,—
Lord, make today one day for thee.

Refrain:
One day for thee, one day for thee!
O Lord and Master, make this a day for thee!
One day for thee, one day for thee!
Lord, make today one day for thee.

2 Lord, make today one day for thee;
Lived at thy side O may it be;
Lest I should fall, O hold thou me,—
Lord, make today one day for thee. [Refrain]

3 Lord, make today one day for thee;
Hold thou full sway, dear Lord, o’er me;
Guide thou my tho’ts—first, let this be:—
Lord, make today one day for thee. [Refrain]

4 Lord, make today one day for thee;
And each today give unto me,
This answered prayer ever to be—
Lord, make today one day for thee. [Refrain]

5 Lord, make today one day for thee,
Till all todays life’s day shall be;
And then from heav’n, O let me see
All of life’s day one day for thee. [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
