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

583. Fountain of Good, to Own Thy Love

1 Fountain of good, to own thy love
our thankful hearts incline;
what can we render, Lord to thee,
when all the worlds are thine?

2 But thou hast needy brethren here,
partakers of thy grace,
whose names thou wilt thyself confess
before the Father's face.

3 And in their accents of distress
thy pleading voice is heard;
in them thou may'st be clothed and fed
and visited and cheered.

4 Thy face with rev'rence and with love
we in thy poor would see;
O may we minister to them,
and in them, Lord, to thee.
