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

In Touch With Thee

Representative Text

1 Moment by moment in touch with Thee,
Jesus my Lord, may I ever be;
Earnest in purpose, in word and deed,
Following where Thy dear hand may lead.

Moment by moment Thy voice to hear,
Moment by moment to feel Thee near!
Oh, it is fulness of joy to be
Moment by moment in touch with Thee!

2 Moment by moment, Lord, keep me Thine,
Let Thine own love-light within me shine,
That upon others its beams may fall,
And they may crown Thee the Lord of all. [Chorus]

3 Moment by moment Thine aid I need,
Trying to sow the most precious seed,
That I at last may rejoicing come,
Bringing my sheaves at the harvest-home. [Chorus]
