We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Savior, Thou art life to me

Representative Text

1 Savior, Thou art life to me,
Guard me by Thy watchful eye;
Ever by Thy Spirit be
Thou a guide to worlds on high.
Hide me from the storms of life;
Keep me from the tempter’s snare;
And while here ’mid toil and strife,
Let me cast on Thee my care.

2 Help me, Lord, to faithful be,
Give me grace to do Thy will;
That through all eternity,
Holy love my soul may thrill.
For though blest by worldly store,
Sanctioned by the creeds of men;
Jesus says, “I am the door,”—
He alone can save from sin.

3 Teach me from Thy blessed Word
Lessons precious to my soul;
Help me understand it, Lord,
By it make and keep me whole.
By Thy Word we stand or fall,
By Thy Word we live or die;
If in part and not by all,
Then we make His word a lie.

4 Oh, Thou art my refuge here,
All my hopes are built on Thee;
From all sin and slavish fear
Jesus makes me fully free.
So when all my toils are o’er,
Let me gain that blest abode;
And with loved ones gone before,
Ever dwell with me, my God.
