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

Full Text

1. As now Thy children lowly kneel,
And all for mercy pray,
O Father, make us truly feel
The solemn words we say.

2. Teach us to hate the power of sin,
Which parts our souls from Thee;
Help us to make our life within
What Thou wilt love to see.

3. Teach us to trust the Lamb of God,
Who takes our sins away;
Help us to choose the path He trod,
And so Thy will obey.

4. Teach us to keep Thy holy laws
Because we trust Thy love;
Help us to rise, when Jesus draws
To better joys above.

5. O teach us more our sins to fear
And more Thy Word to love:
Help us on earth the cross to bear
And win the crown above.
