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

CCCV. We bless the Father and the Son

1 We bless the Father and the Son,
We bless the Holy Ghost likewise;
We praise the sacred Three in One,
Who made our Souls from Sin to rise.

2 Thy sacred Precepts we receive,
O LORD we bless thy holy Name,
That thou should ever give us Leave,
And charge us to obey the same.

3 It is an Honour to obey,
Thy great commands before all Men
So we have trod the wat'ry Way,
For in the Water CHRIST hath been.

4 This ordinance O LORD we keep,
According to thy wise Design;
Lord may we walk among thy Sheep;
We seek no other fold but thine.

5 LORD guide us by thy Counsel here,
Will we this gloomy Vale have past;
Save us from Sin, save us from Fear,
And bring us to thyself at last.
