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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

405. Jesus, Lord, We Look to Thee

1 Jesus, Lord, we look to thee;
let us in thy name agree;
show thyself the Prince of peace,
bid all strife forever cease.

2 Make us of one heart and mind,
courteous, pitiful, and kind,
lowly, meek, in thought and word,
altogether like the Lord.

3 Let us for each other care,
each the other's burdens bear;
to thy church the pattern give,
show how true believers live.

4 Free from anger and from pride,
let us thus in God abide;
all the depths of love express,
all the heights of holiness.

5 Fill us with the Father's love;
never from our souls remove;
dwell in us and we shall be
thine through all eternity.
