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.

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

Representative Text

1 Take my moments, blessed Jesus;
Keep them for me ev’ry day,
Till they grow with life and beauty;
Fill them with Thy praise alway.

Take my moments, keep them ever,
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Use them, make each one a blessing
Garnered for eternity.

2 Keep them for Thy use, dear Saviour,
As they pass so swiftly by;
Let them shine thro’ years of service
With a glory from on high. [Refrain]

3 Just the moments, but they may be
Touched with God’s electric love,
Till they bear some flaming message
From the mercy-seat above. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
