Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Dear Saviour, thro’ grace we have promised
With rev’rence to honor Thy laws,
To go as Thy word has commanded,
And work for Thy kingdom and cause.
To those who are mourning in sorrow,
Glad tidings of joy to proclaim,
To stand by the Church Thou hast purchased,
The church that is called by Thy name.

Refrain:
Dear Saviour, thro’ grace we have promised
With rev’rence to honor Thy laws,
To go as Thy word has commanded,
And work for Thy kingdom and cause.

2 Dear Saviour, thro’ grace we have promised
To rescue the poor and oppressed,
To care for the weak and the fainting,
And point to their refuge and rest.
Wherever the field of our labor,
Its duties together we’ll share,
And patiently carry our burdens
To Thee, our Redeemer, in prayer. [Refrain]

3 Dear Saviour, thro’ grace we have promised
Thy faithful disciples to be,
To find our delight in Thy service,
And give ourselves wholly to Thee.
And then when at sunset Thou callest
To yonder blest mansions above,
We’ll lay down the sheaves we have gathered,
And hear Thy sweet welcome of love. [Refrain]
