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,

1009. Oh, Write Thy Law

1 Oh, write Thy wondrous love divine
Upon the tables of my heart,
That I may keep Thy statutes, Lord,
And never from Thy way depart.

Refrain:
Oh, may Thy perfect law of truth,
Through seasons’ change, by day and night,
Be light and life and strength to me,
My meditation, my delight.

2 Oh, write Thy law of holiness
In living characters of flame,
That by a life of purity
I may be worthy of Thy name. [Refrain]

3 Oh, write Thy law of tenderness
And of compassion in my breast,
Till heart and voice and hand reach out
To help the weary and distressed. [Refrain]

4 Oh, write Thy law, Thy law of love
Within me till my soul shall be,
By bonds no storm can ever break,
United to Thy flock and Thee. [Refrain]
