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.

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,

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.
