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

328. O Lord, who hast my place assigned

1 O Lord, who hast my place assigned,
And made my duties plain,
Grant for my work a ready mind,
My wayward thoughts restrain.

2 Let me in Thy most holy name
My daily task pursue:
Thy glory be my only aim
In all I think and do.

3 May I submissive to Thy will
In all my calling be,
And let me as Thy servant still
Be faithful found to Thee.

4 Thy goodness all my life has crowned,
And all my wants supplied;
O let that goodness still aboud,
And daily bread provide.

5 Be Thou my guide in all my ways;
From every ill defend;
And may my songs of daily praise
In grateful joy ascend.

6 May I in faith still stronger grow,
While here I toil in love;
And when my work is done below,
Give me sweet rest above.
