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

1. Savior, in Thy holy keeping,
Take, O take our hearts anew;
Guard us from the world’s temptation,
All the pilgrim journey thro’.

Refrain
By Thy grace, O Lord, defend us,
While as strangers here we roam,
In Thy tender mercy lead us
Till we reach our heav’nly home.

2. Let our faith in Thee be centered,
Growing brighter day by day;
Let our hopes be clear and steadfast,
All along our homeward way. [Refrain]

3. Let our love be deep and fervent,
Like to Thine, so full and free,
And at last, when Heav’n we enter,
Let Thy name our password be. [Refrain]
