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

Almighty Lord of all, of life the only spring

Almighty Lord of all, of life the only spring

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Almighty Lord of all!
Of life the only spring!
Creator of unnumber'd worlds!
Supreme, eternal King!

2 Preserve me from deceit,
Impenitence, and pride;
Nor let me in forbidden paths,
With thoughtless sinners, glide.

3 What thine unerring eye
Sees for thy creature fit:
I'll bless the good, and to the ill
Contentedly submit.

4 With pleasure let me view
The Prosp'rous and the great;
Malignant envy let me fly,
And odious selfconceit.

5 Let no despair, revenge,
Be to my bosom known:
Oh! give me tears for other's woes,
And patience for my own.

6 Feed me with needful food:
I ask not wealth or fame.
Give me an eye to see thy will,
A heart to bless thy name.

7 Still let my days be past
Without remorse or care;
And growing holiness my soul
For life's last hour prepare!
