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

256. Yours Forever, God of Love

1 Yours forever, God of love!
Hear us from your throne above.
Yours forever may we be
Here and in eternity.

2 Yours forever! Oh, how blest
They who find in you their rest!
Savior, Guardian, heav'nly Friend,
Oh, defend us to the end.

3 Yours forever! Lord of life,
Shield us through our earthly strife.
You, the life, the truth, the way,
Guide us to the realms of day.

4 Yours forever! Shepherd, save
This your flock that you forgave.
Keep us safe within your care,
Let us all your goodness share.

5 Yours forever! You our guide,
All our wants by you supplied,
All our sins by you forgiven,
Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
