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.

Come, Lord, thyself, in all thy grace

Representative Text

1 Come, Lord, Thyself, in all Thy grace;
Mine utmost need Thine eyes can trace:
Be Thou my guide through life's long way,
Nor let my falt'ring footsteps stray.

2 Upon mine eyes dark dawns the day,
The sounds of earth fall far away;
None, none can aid; by death's lone door
I leave man's help for evermore.

3 None, none can aid, save Thou, dear Lord;
I stay me on Thy faithful Word;
Let earth decay, heav'n's glories pale,
Jehovah's Word can never fail.

4 O may each psalm my voice can raise
Extol Thy kindness, hymn Thy praise;
O may each note my peps can frame
In heaven's glory laud Thy name.

5 For evermore through that bright day
I would my Savior's grace display
And praise with all the ransomed host
Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
