Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Representative Text

1 Succor of the tempted,
Hear me when I call;
Turn to me in mercy,
At thy feet I fall;
Help me bear life’s crosses,
All my sins forgive,
Like my Lord and Master,
Daily may I live.

2 Give me strength, I pray thee,
To resist the ill,
When my courage fails me,
Be my comfort still;
Thou hast known temptation,
Yet without a sin,
By thy strength I’ll conquer,
By thy grace I’ll win.

3 In my darkest trials,
Be my constant friend;
Lead me ev’ry moment
To my journey’s end;
When the waves of Jordan
Fiercely round me roll,
In thine arms of mercy,
Bear my fainting soul.
