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

S8. Herre, jag beder

1 Herre, jag beder,
Fattig och hjälplös i mig:
Se till mig neder,
Öppna mitt hjärta för dig!

2 Råd du därinne,
Låt mig se ljus i ditt ljus!
Aldrig mitt sinne
Mättas af stoft eller grus.

e Sänd från det h¨ga
Anden, som utgår af dig,
Och med ditt öga
Led mig på sanningens stig!

4 Våren försvinner
Hastigt, likt dage i går.
Säll den, som finner
Lifvet i ungdomens vår!
