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

Blessed Jesus, hear my prayer

Full Text

1 Blessed Jesus, hear my prayer
Upon Thee I cast my care;
Lift the bondage from me now,
While to Thee I humbly bow.
Savior, now my sins forgive,
Bid me come to Thee and live;
Let Thy blood cleanse every stain,
Take my heart and make it clean.

2 Teach me how to trust Thee, Lord,
Teach me how to keep Thy Word;
Teach me how to watch and pray,
How to serve Thee every day.
Blessèd Jesus, Thou art mine,
Pure and holy, just, divine;
Only Thee will I adore,
Praise Thee now and evermore.
