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

504. Bless Our Loved Ones, Holy Father

1 Bless our loved ones, Holy Father;
Hear our anxious prayer;
By your mercy keep them always
In your care.

2 Jesus, Savior, let your presence
Be their light and guide;
Keep, oh, keep them in their weakness
At your side.

3 When in sorrow, when in danger,
When in loneliness,
In your love look down and comfort
Their distress.

4 May the joy of your salvation
Be their strength and stay!
May they love and may they praise you
Day by day!

5 Holy Spirit, let your teaching
Sanctify their life;
Send your grace that they may conquer
In the strife.

6 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God forever true,
Bless them, guide them, save them, keep them
Close to you.
