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 More and more I need thee,
Precious Friend divine;
More and more I need thee,
In this heart of mine;
Thou hast led me ever,
Still my refuge be;
Saviour, loving Saviour,
Abide with me.

Refrain:
More and more I need thee,
O I need thee!
Saviour, loving Saviour,
Abide with me.

2 More and more I need thee,
Thou, my all in all;
More and more I need thee,
Lest I faint and fall;
I am weak and helpless,
Thou, my strength must be;
Saviour, loving Saviour,
Abide with me. [Refrain]

3 More and more I need thee,
In temptation’s hour;
More and more I need thee,
Need thy keeping power;
Let my soul uplifted,
Cling by faith to thee;
Saviour, loving Saviour,
Abide with me. [Refrain]

4 More and more I need thee,
While the days go by;
More and more I need thee,
While the moments fly;
In thy secret presence,
Let my dwelling be;
Saviour, loving Saviour,
Abide with me. [Refrain]
