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.

740. Lord a Little Band and Lowly

1 Lord, a little band, and lowly,
We are come to sing to Thee;
Thou art great, and high, and holy—
Oh, how solemn we should be!

Refrain:
Far away, in the realms of beauty,
Farther on, to the golden shore,
Pressing on, in the line of duty,
We shall meet to part no more.

2 Fill our hearts with tho'ts of Jesus,
And of heav'n where He has gone;
And let nothing ever please us
He would grieve to look upon. [Refrain]

3 For we know the Lord of glory
Always sees what children do,
And is writing now the story
Of our thoughts and actions, too. [Refrain]

4 Let our sins be all forgiven;
Make us fear whate'er is wrong;
Let us on our way to heaven,
There to sing a nobler song. [Refrain]
