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.

1 O Jesus, I need Thee; no power but Thine
From sin can deliver a nature like mine;
O gracious Redeemer, my Saviour be Thou,
If ever, O Jesus, if ever, just now!

2 O Jesus, I need Thee; temptation’s dark hour
Is closing around me I feel its dread power;
O gracious Redeemer, my Saviour be Thou,
If ever, O Jesus, if ever, just now!

3 O Jesus, I need Thee; for hard is the road,
And long is the journey, and heavy the load;
O gracious Redeemer, my Saviour be Thou,
If ever, O Jesus, if ever, just now!

4 O Jesus, I need Thee; O hear Thou my Cry!
I need Thee to live, and I need Thee to die;
O gracious Redeemer, my Saviour be Thou,
If ever, O Jesus, if ever, just now!
