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 Hymnary.org, 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,

576. Dear Lord and Master mine

1 Dear Lord and Master mine,
Thy happy servant see;
My Conqueror, with what joy divine
Thy captive clings to thee!

2 I love thy yoke to wear,
To feel thy gracious bands;
Sweetly restrained by thy care
And happy in thy hands.

3 No bar would I remove,
No bond would I unbind;
Within the limits of thy love
Full liberty I find.

4 I would not walk alone,
But still with thee, my God;
At ev'ry step my blindness own,
And ask of thee the road.

5 Dear Lord and Master mine,
Still keep thy servant true;
My Guardian and my Guide divine,
Bring, bring thy pilgrim through.

6 My Conqueror and my King,
Still keep me in thy train;
And with thee thy glad captive bring
When thou return'st to reign.

Amen.
