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, 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,

413. O God, Whose Will Is Life and Good

1 O God, whose will is life and good
for all of mortal breath,
unite in bonds of servanthood
all those who strive with death.

2 Make strong their hands and hearts and wills
to drive disease afar,
to strive against the body's ills
and wage your healing war.

3 By healing of the sick and blind,
Christ's mercy they proclaim,
make known the great Physician's mind,
affirm the Savior's name.

4 Before them set your gracious will,
that they, with heart and soul,
to you may consecrate their skill
and make the sufferer whole.
