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,

340. Father of Peace and God of Love

1 Father of peace, and God of love,
we own thy power to save,
that power by which our shepherd rose
victorious o’er the grave.

2 Him from the dead thou brought’st again,
when by his sacred blood,
Ccnfirmed and sealed forevermore
Th’eternal covenant stood.

3 O may Thy Spirit seal our souls,
and mold them to thy will,
that our weak hearts no more may stray,
but keep thy precepts still;

4 that to perfection's sacred height
we nearer still may rise,
and all we think and all we do,
be pleasing in thine eyes.
