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. Trim thy lamp and keep it burning,
With a clear and steady ray;
It may cheer a weary pilgrim,
That perchance has lost his way.

Refrain
Trim thy lamp, and keep it burning,
Till our blessèd Lord appear;
Keep it trimmed and shining brightly,
For His coming draweth near.

2. Never waning, ever shining,
Day and night thy lamp must be,
Lest a brother’s feet should stumble,
And his fall be charged to thee. [Refrain]

3. Trim thy lamp and keep it burning
With the flame of sacred love,
Pointing ever to the mansions
Of eternal rest above. [Refrain]
