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 While struggling through this vale of tears
I want more faith in Jesus;
Amid temptations, cares and fears,
I want more faith in Jesus.

Refrain:
I want more faith, I want more faith,
A clearer, brighter, strong faith in Jesus;
And this my cry, as time rolls by,
I want more faith in Jesus

2 To war against the foes within
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rise above the powers of sin
I want more faith in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 To brave the storms that her I meet
I want more faith in Jesus;
To rest confiding at his feet
I want more faith in Jesus. [Refrain]

4 I want a faith that works by love,
A constant faith in Jesus;
A faith that mountains can remove,
A living faith in Jesus. [Refrain]
