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, 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.

1 Now trim your lamp for Jesus,
Let not your light be dim;
Full well He knows each action
That you may do for Him.

Then trim your lamp for Jesus,
And to your faith be true;
The world will judge of Jesus
By what they see in you.

2 Now trim your lamp for Jesus,
Nor let it hidden be;
Be not ashamed of Jesus,
He’s not ashamed of thee. [Refrain]

3 Now trim your lamp for Jesus;
’Tis He who bids you shine;
And His shall be the glory,
A crown of life be thine. [Refrain]

4 Then trim your lamp for Jesus,
Nor deem it e’er a cross
To bravely shine for Jesus
’Mid earthly sin and loss. [Refrain]
