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.

Representative Text

1 Dear Saviour, we gather
Once more at thy throne;
Oh, hear us, we pray thee,
Now make us thine own.

Here gratefully bending,
Sweet melody blending,
Come, oh, come, tenderly
Call us thine own.

2 Dear Saviour, thy promise
We truly believe;
Whoever will seek thee
Shall mercy receive. [Chorus]

3 Dear Saviour, behold us,
In thee would we hide;
We ask that thy Spirit
In us may abide. [Chorus]

4 Dear Saviour, we love thee,
Thy name we adore;
Oh, grant us thy blessing,
Thy joy evermore. [Chorus]
