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

74. Desire After God

1 O Lord, give ear when with my voice
I cry aloud to Thee;
Have mercy also, I entreat,
Give answer unto me.

2 When Thou didst say, Seek ye My face,
My answering heart replied,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek
Above all else beside.

3 Hide not Thy face, nor in Thy wrath
Thy servant put away;
Thou hast a helper been to me
In ev'ry troublous day.

4 O God, my Saviour, leave me not;
Tho' parents should forsake,
The Lord, within His arms of love,
His child will surely take.
