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,
Harry Plantinga

169. My Heart Does Overflow

1 My heart does overflow, a goodly theme is mine;
my eager tongue with joyful song does praise the King divine.
Supremely fair you are, your lips with grace o'erflow;
his richest blessings evermore does God on you bestow.

2 Now gird thee with your sword, O strong and mighty One,
in splendid majesty arrayed, more glorious than the sun.
Triumphantly ride forth for meekness, truth, and right;
your arm shall gain the victory in wondrous deeds of might.

3 Your strength shall overcome all those that hate the King,
and under your dominion strong the nations you shall bring.
Your royal throne, O God, forevermore shall stand;
eternal truth and justice wield the scepter in your hand.

4 Since your were sinless found, the Lord, by you confessed,
anointed you with perfect joy - you are supremely blessed.
Your garments breathe of myrrh and spices sweet and rare;
glad strains of heav'nly music ring throughout your palace fair.

5 Amid your glorious train kings' daughters waiting stand,
and fairest gems bedeck your bride, the queen at your right hand.
O royal bride, give heed, and to my words attend;
for Christ, the King, forsake the world and ev'ry former friend.
