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

293. Lord Jesus, with Thy Presence Bless

1 Lord Jesus, with Thy presence bless,
By land and sea, Thy witnesses;
In every danger them defend,
In every trial prove their Friend.

2 O may Thy Word in Christendom
Be blest and may Thy Kingdom come;
And may Thy servants joyful bring
New spoils, each day, to Thee, their King.

3 Thy thoughts of peace o’er us fulfill,
Incline our hearts to do Thy will,
Thy Gospel make more fully known,
May all the world Thy goodness own.
