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.

364. O Lord, I sing with mouth and heart

1 O Lord, I sing with mouth and heart,
Joy of my soul! to Thee;
To earth Thy knowledge I impart,
As it is known to me.

2 Thou art the Fount of grace, I know,
And Spring so fall and free,
Whence saving health and goodness flow
Each day so bounteously.

3 Thou feedest us from year to year,
And constant dost abide:
When danger fills our hearts with fear,
With help art at our side.

4 With patience dost Thou ev'r abide,
Nor long Thine anger keep,
But castest all our sins aside
Into the ocean's deep.

5 Our deepest needs dost Thou supply,
Thou giv’st what lasts for aye,
Thou lead’st us to our home on high,
When hence we pass away.

6 Then up, my heart, rejoice and sing,
A Cheerful trust maintain!
For God, the Source of ev'rything,
Thy portion will remain.
