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

LXXVIII. Father of Heav'n, we Thee address

1 Father of Heav'n, we Thee address
(Obedience is our View)
Accept us in thy Son; and Bless
The Work we have to do.

2 Jesus, as Water well applied
Will make the Body clean;
So in the Fountain of thy Side
Wash Thou the Soul from Sin.

3 Celestial Dove, descend from High,
And on the Water brood;
And with thy quick'ning Pow'r apply
The Water and the Blood.

4 Great God, Three-One, again we call,
And our Requests renew,
Accept in Christ; and bless withal
The Work we've now to do.
