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 Coming in the name of Jesus,
Grace we seek with one accord,
Not to do the things that please us,
But the things that please our Lord.
Following Him is our endeavor,
To our promise keeping true;
Striving still to do whatever
He would like to have us do.

2 Daily seeking strength and guiding,
Faithful to the Church we love,
In the life of trust abiding,
Till we share the life above;
We will leave the Savior never,
We would pledge ourselves anew;
We will strive to do whatever
He would like to have us do.

3 In our happy meeting hour
We would always claim a share,
Owning Jesus’ love and power,
In a word, a song, a prayer.
Be our help, dear Lord, forever;
Nerve our courage, bring us thro’,
Till we love to do whatever
Thou wouldst like to have us do.
