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

410. Lord Jesus Christ, Our Lord Most Dear

1 Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord most dear,
as thou wast once an infant here,
so give this child of thine, we pray,
thy grace and blessing day by day.

Refrain:
O holy Jesus, Lord divine,
we pray thee guard this child of thine.

2 As in thy heav'nly kingdom, Lord,
all things obey thy sacred Word,
do thou thy mighty succor give,
and shield this child by morn and eve. [Refrain]

3 Their watch let angels round him keep
where'er he be, awake, asleep;
thy saving grace on him bestow
that he in thee may live and grow. [Refrain]
