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.
1 Come, O thou prince of glory come!
O dwell with us, here make thy home;
To all the nations shew thy light,
And bring the way of truth to sight.
2 To thee is known all we do need,
Thou art our comforter indeed.
We give our hearts and minds to thee,
O may thy dwelling with us be!
3 But O, thou art already here!
Our minds and senses feel thee near--
We know that thou art good and kind.
Thy grace works sweetly on our mind.
4 O fill our hearts with heavenly love!
Teach us true wisdom from above;
Our hearts and wills to thee incline,
And cause us to be wholy thine.
5 Direct our minds in all thy ways;
Our tongues imploy to shew thy praise--
So shall we serve thee as we ought
In all our actions, words and thought.
6 Grant us thy blessed spirits aid,
By which our feeble minds are stay'd!
Increase our hope, confirm our faith,
And make us faithful unto death.
7 With heav'nly aid our souls revive,
In faith, and truth, and love to thrive,
Till we with holy Angels sing:
Hosannah to the Lord our king.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #VII
