Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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.

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

144. Father of Mercies, in Your Word

1 Father of mercies, in your Word
what endless glory shines;
forever be your name adored
for these celestial lines.

2 Here may the wretched sons of want
exhaustless riches find;
riches above what earth can grant
and lasting as the mind.

3 Here the Redeemer's welcome voice
spreads heav'nly peace around;
and life and everlasting joys
attend the blissful sound.

4 O may these heav'nly pages be
my ever-dear delight;
and still new beauties may I see,
and still increasing light.

5 Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
O be forever near;
teach me to love your sacred Word,
and view my Savior there.
