Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

54. A Heart Like Thine

1 Give me a love that knows no ill,
Give me the grace to do Thy will;
Pardon and cleanse this soul of mine,
Give me a heart like Thine.

Come to my soul, blessed Jesus,
Hear me! O Savior divine!
Open the fountain and cleanse me,
Give me a heart like Thine.

2 Only a joy, a few brief years,
Only a dream, a vale of tears;
Vain is this world I now resign,
Give me a heart like Thine. [Refrain]

3 Open mine eyes that I may see,
Show me the cross of Calvary;
There may I go and not repine,
Give me a heart like Thine. [Refrain]

4 Pillow my head upon Thy breast,
Shelter my soul and give me rest;
Fill me with love as I recline,
Give me a heart like Thine. [Refrain]
