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

CLXIII. Lord, I am thine; but thou wilt prove

1 Lord, I am thine; but thou wilt prove
My Faith, my Patience, and my Love:
When Men of Spight against me join,
They are the Sword, the Hand is thine.

2 their Hope and Portion lies below:
'Tis all the Happiness they know,
'Tis all they seek; they take their Shares,
And leave the rest among their Heirs.

3 What Sinners Value, I resign;
LORD, 'tis enough that thou art mine:
I shall behold thy blissful Face,
And stand complete in Righteousness.

4 This Life's a Dream, an empty Show;
But the bright World to which I go
Hath Joys substantial and sincere:
When shall I wake and find me there!

5 O Glorious Hour! O blest Abode!
I shall be near and like my God!
And Flesh and Sin no more controul
The sacred Pleasures of the Soul.

6 My Flesh shall slumber in the Ground
'Till the last Trumpet's joyful Sound;
Then burst the Chains with sweet Surprize
And in my SAVIOUR's image rise.
