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 Without Thee, my Saviour, I nothing can do;
I strive, but I fail to be faithful and true;
My strength is but weakness, and faint is my heart,
Unless Thou art nigh me Thy grace to impart.

Refrain:
Abide with me ever, O Saviour, abide,
My Refuge in danger, in darkness, my Guide.

2 Without Thee, my Saviour, I struggle in vain;
I sink ‘neath the wave with no arm to sustain;
But when Thou art with me to strengthen my soul,
I cling to the Rock though the waves o’er me roll. [Refrain]

3 Without Thee, my Saviour, I cannot prevail
When foes of my soul with their weapons assail;
But when Thou art with me to gird me with might,
I march to the battle, and win in the fight. [Refrain]
