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 of Thyself in me, my Father,
Less of the world in me;
More of Thy grace for daily living,
That Christ my all may be.

2 More of Thy pow’r for use in service,
Less of myself, I pray;
More of Thy patience and endurance,
More like Thee, Lord, each day.

3 More on Thy love and Thy compassion,
Less on myself to lean;
More of Thy willingness to suffer,
That Christ may e’er be seen.

4 More trust in Thee when sorely tempted,
Less on myself rely;
More on Thee lean to keep from falling,
Ever to feel Thee nigh.

5 More like Thyself each day, each moment,
Less like the world I’d be.
This is my pray’r, my God, my Father,
Ever to be like Thee.
