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

508. I bind my heart this tide

1 I bind my heart this tide
to the Galilean's side,
to the wounds of Calvary,
to the Christ who died for me.

2 I bind my soul this day
to the neighbour far away,
to the stranger near at hand
in this town, and in this land.

3 I bind my heart and soul
to the God, the Lord of all,
to the God, the poor one's friend,
and the Christ whom he did send.

4 I bind myself to peace,
to make strife and envy cease.
My God, fasten sure the cord
of my service to the Lord!
