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

25. Consecration Prayer (for the Junior Societies)

1 We come to thee, Lord Jesus,
With off'rings full and free;
Ourselves and all our service,
We consecrate to thee.

Lord, hear our prayer,
Hear and receive us now;
Lord, hear our prayer,
As before thy face we bow.

2 Our wayward hearts we bring thee,
So readily still to sin;
Oh, take the hearts we offer,
And make them pure within. [Chorus]

3 Our hands and feet we give thee,
Our lips, our lives, our all;
Lord, send us on thine errands,
And keep us lest we fall. [Chorus]

4 We long to love and please thee,
As Master thee we own;
Oh, help us, loving Saviour,
We are so weak alone. [Chorus]
