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

82b. My Father, God, to Thee

1 My Father, God, to thee,
On reverent bended knee,
To thee I bow;
To thee my prayer I raise,
To thee my psalm of praise,
In thine unbounded grace,
Oh, hear me now!

2 Weary and weak I come,
Still seeking through the gloom
To see thy face;
O Father, hear my plea,
And take me nearer thee,
And let thy bosom be
My resting place.

3 My path is wrapt in cloud,
This world is cold and proud,
And shadows come;
But yet I trust in thee,
That o'er life's troubled sea,
To where the mansions be,
Thou'lt lead me home.
