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, 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.

536. Searcher of Hearts, from Mine Erase

1 Searcher of hearts, from mine erase,
all thoughts that should not be,
and in its deep recesses trace
my gratitude to thee.

2 Hearer of prayer, O guide aright
each word and deed of mine;
life's battle teach me how to fight,
and be the vict'ry thine.

3 Giver of all - for ev'ry good
in the Redeemer came -
for raiment, shelter, and for food,
I thank thee in his name.

4 Father and Son and Holy Ghost,
thou glorious Three in One,
thou knowest best what I need most,
and let thy will be done.
