During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Representative Text

1 Save me from sin, my blessèd Lord, I pray,
Save me from sin, thro’ all the weary day;
From foes without, from doubts and fears within,
Oh, heav’nly Father, save, I pray from sin.

2 Save me from sin, when tempted sore and tried,
When worldly joys allure on every side;
When all seems bright, and life one joyous day,
Then, heav’nly Father, save from sin, I pray.

3 Save me from sin, when life seems dark and drear,
Oh, let me feel Thy tender presence near;
Help me to trust when darkness veils my way,
Oh, heav’nly Father, save from sin, I pray.

4 Save me from sin, when evening shadows fall,
Hold Thou my hand, on Thee alone I call;
Guide Thou my steps, thro’ all the darksome way,
Then, heav’nly Father, save at last, I pray.
