Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

688. We Give Thee but Thine Own

1 We give Thee but thine own,
whate’er the gift may be:
all that we have is thine alone,
a trust, O Lord, from thee.

2 May we thy bounties thus
as stewards true receive,
and gladly, as thou blessest us,
to thee our first-fruits give.

3 To comfort and to bless,
to find a balm for woe,
to tend the lone and fatherless
is angels’ work below.

4 The captive to relieve,
to God the lost to bring,
to teach the way of life and peace—-
it is a Christ-like thing.

5 And we believe thy word,
though dim our faith may be:
whate’er for thine we do, O Lord,
we do it unto thee.
