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

I.CXXI. Thus saith the Mercy of the Lord

1 Thus saith the Mercy of the Lord,
I'll be a God to thee;
I'll bless thy num'rous Race, and they
Shall be a Seed for me.

2 Abr'am believ'd the promis'd Grace,
And gave his Sons to God;
But Water seals the Blessing now,
That once was seal'd with Blood.

3 Thus Lydia sanctify'd her House,
When she receiv'd the Word;
Thus the believing Goaler gave
His Household to the Lord.

4 Thus later Saints, eternal King,
Thine ancient Truth embrace;
To thee their Infant Offspring bring,
And humbly claim the Grace.
