Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

380. Father, Again in Jesus' Name We Meet

1 Father, again in Jesus' name we meet,
and bow in penitence beneath your feet:
again to you our feeble voices raise,
to sue for mercy, and to sing your praise.

2 O we would bless you for your ceaseless care,
and all your works from day to day declare:
is not our life with hourly mercies crowned?
Does not your arm encircle us around?

3 Alas, unworthy of your boundless love,
too oft with careless feet from you we rove;
but now, encouraged by your voice, we come,
returning sinners to a Father's home.

4 O by that name in whom all fullness dwells,
O by that love which ev'ry love excels,
O by that blood so freely shed for sin,
open blest mercy's gate and take us in.
