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

433. O God of Mercy, God of Might

1 O God of mercy, God of might,
in love and pity infinite,
teach us, as ever in thy sight,
to live our life to thee.

2 And thou who cam'st on earth to die,
that fallen man might live thereby,
O hear us, for to thee we cry
in hope, O Lord, to thee.

3 Teach us the lesson thou hast taught,
to feel for those thy blood hath bought;
that every word and deed and thought
may work a work for thee.

4 For they are brethren, far and wide,
since thou, O Lord, for them hast died;
then teach us, whatsoe'er betide,
to love them all in thee.

5 In sickness, sorrow, want, or care,
whate'er it be, 'tis ours to share;
may we, when help is needed, there
give help as unto thee.
