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.

Representative Text

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]
