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

1 Not for tomorrow, but today,
I humbly pray;
Lord, keep me from the sinful way,
Just for today!
Just for today,
Just for today:
Oh, keep me from the sinful way,
Just for today!

2 Help me Thy precious word to heed,
Prompt to obey,—
To love and serve my Lord indeed,
Just for today!
Just for today,
Just for today:
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today!

3 Let me no wrong or idle word
Unthinking say;
Keep Thou my lips from speaking hurt,
Just for today!
Just for today,
Just for today:
Keep Thou my lips from evil, Lord,
Just for today!

4 Forgive: if aught should grieve Thy will,
Take it away.
My heart with grace and wisdom fill,
Just for today!
Just for today,
Just for today:
My heart with love and patience fill,
Just for today!
