We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Bless me, O my Saviour, bless me,
Kneeling at Thy throne of grace;
Here I sought Thee, here I find Thee,
In Thine ark and resting place.

2 Blessed Saviour, Thou who gavest
Full redemption by Thy Blood,
Wash me from my foul offences,
Cleanse me, O Thou Son of God!

3 Breathe upon me, Gracious Spirit,
Benediction full and strong,
Keep my feet in safety's pathway,
Keep my soul from sin and wrong.

4 Sacred Trinity of Power,
Mystic Unity above,
Sanctify this evening hour
With Thine endless, boundless love.

5 Throned in glory, veiled in splendour,
Praised by all the heavenly host.
Hear our Holy, Holy, Holy,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
