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

61. A Living Sacrifice

1 I love the Christ, the Son of God,
Who died that I might live;
I would my gratitude express,
A gift unto Him give.

Refrain:
My gift is small, it is my all,
Accept it, Lord, I pray;
Let self be slain, let Jesus reign
Within my heart alway.

2 I fail to find a sacrifice,
Or fitting gift to bring;
Earth’s treasures have too little worth
To offer to my King. [Refrain]

3 No gift, however grand or great,
Could pay the debt I owe;
I bring myself, my life, my all,
A living gift bestow. [Refrain]

4 My members all I gladly yield
For service, Lord, to Thee;
To bear the blessed gospel light,
That others Christ may see. [Refrain]
