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

106b. Lord of the brave and strong

Lord of the brave and strong,
Armed for the ceaseless fight,
Fired with the love of right,
Filled with a hate of wrong,--
Thine is the might they wield,
Lord of the brave and strong.

Lord of the weak and faint,--
Faint yet pursuing still,
Bowing to Thy sweet will,
Bearing without complaint;
Thine is their power to bear,
Lord of the weak and faint.

Lord of the good and true,
Souls, that the rays entwine
Shot from the Orb divine,
Lives that their tasks pursue;
Thine is the life they live,
Lord of the good and true.

Lord of the souls that love,
Seeking the lives that roam,
Bringing the wanderers home,
Pointing to bliss above;
Thine is the love, O Christ,
Lord of the souls that love.

Lord of all souls that live!
Grant us Thy grace, we pray,
Humbly from day to day,
Ever our best to give;--
Thou wilt our souls befriend,
Lord of all souls that live.
