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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Much of my life, Lord, seems to me
A striving to be good and not reality;
My heart is burdened, Lord, reveal, I pray,
If there is not for me some better way.

Refrain:
“I am the vine, ye are the branches;
He that abideth in Me and I in him
The same bringeth forth much fruit,
For without Me ye can do nothing.”

2 “Light from above first dawned on thee
When seeing My completed work on Calvary;
No other light can no thy pathway guide,
From hour to hour, My child, in Me abide!” [Refrain]

3 “Have I not pow’r thy soul to keep?
The Shepherd true is ever near to guard His sheep;
For I, the Christ, am truth and life and way,
Abide in Me for grace from day to day.” [Refrain]
