We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

46. O God of life, in whom we live

O God of life, in whom we live,
The bounties of Thy favour give,
And teach our souls to soar;
That, at the source of every good,
Our life may find its needful food,
And live for evermore.

O Lord of mercy, by whose grace
The sinner seeks the Father’s face,
And finds a welcome there;
When fears the trembling soul distress,
And sins the aching heart oppress,
O Lord of mercy, spare.

And say to Him who loves Thee best,
And sent Thee to a world distressed,
His blessing to impart,—
“Hear Thou the sinner’s mournful cries,
Accept his preferred sacrifice,
A broken, contrite heart.”

Blest Spirit, who in holy flame,
At Pentecost all powerful came,—
Our sin-stained souls renew;
And by Thine all-consuming fire,
Consume our sin and vile desire,
And make us pure and true.

To God who dwells in highest heaven,
Be endless praise and glory given,—
And praise to Christ the Son.
And to the Holy Spirit blest,
For comfort and for gifts the best,—
Immortal Three in One.
