Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 Make thine abode with me,
Be thou my guest;
Thou art my portion here,
Thou art my rest;
Tho’, like a summer day,
Fond hopes may fade away,
Jesus, my heart can say,
Thou knowest best.

2 Why should I doubt and fear
When thou art mine?
How can I faint or fall,
My hand in thine?
Light of my pilgrim way,
My soul’s eternal day,
Help me to watch and pray,
Lord, keep me thine.

3 Tho’ hedged on every side
My path may be,
Gladly I follow on,
Trusting in thee;
Love, on celestial wings,
Peace to my spirit brings,
While faith looks up and sings,
Glory to thee.

4 Thine, tho’ my days be long,
Saviour divine,
Thine, when their light shall fade,
No more to shine;
O thou unchanging Word,
Thou from all time adored—
Living or dying, Lord,
Still I am thine.
