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

364. Jesus, stand among us

1 Jesus, stand among us
in your risen power;
let this time of worship
be a hallowed hour.

2 Breathe the Holy Spirit
into every heart;
bid the fears and sorrows
from each soul depart.

3 Thus with quickened footsteps
we'll pursue our way,
watching for the dawning
of the eternal day.
