Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

5. Command Thy Blessing From Above

1 Command Thy blessing from above,
O God! on all assembled here;
Behold us with a father's love,
While we look up with filial fear.

2 Command Thy blessing, Jesus, Lord!
May we Thy true disciples be;
Speak to each heart the mighty word,
Say to the weakest, Follow Me.

3 Command Thy blessing in this hour,
Spirit of truth! and fill the place
With humbling and exalting pow'r,
With quick'ning and confirming grace.

4 With Thee and Thine for ver found,
May all the souls who here unite,
With harps and songs Thy throne surround,
Rest in Thy love and reign in light.
