Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

584. Blessed Are the Pure in Heart

1 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see their God.
The secret of the Lord is theirs;
their soul is Christ's abode.

2 The Lord, who left the sky
our life and peace to bring,
to dwell in lowliness with us,
our pattern and our king,

3 he to the lowly soul
will still himself impart
and for his dwelling and his throne
will chose the pure in heart.

4 Lord, we your presence seek;
we ask this blessing true:
give us a pure and lowly heart,
a temple fit for you.
