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

1 Accept my grateful praises,
O Jesus Christ, my Lord,
For ev’ry precious promise
I find within Thy word!
What service can I render?
What promise can I make,
For all Thou hast accomplish’d
And suffer’d for my sake?

For trusting only in Thy strength,
Which Thou has pledg’d to me,
My willing heart would thus respond,
And pledge itself to Thee.

2 Upon Thy strength depending,
I give my promise true,
Whatever Thou wouldst have me
That will I strive to do!
In prayer I’ll seek Thee daily,
And read Thy holy word;
And make my life’s endeavor
To follow Thee, dear Lord. [Refrain]

3 Wherever duty calls me,
There, Saviour, will I be:
I’ll join with Thy disciples,
And testify for Thee.
For Thy dear Church I’ll labor,
My willing service give;
The Church my Saviour died for,
For her I’ll gladly live! [Refrain]
