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

Dearest Lord, we come to thee

Dearest Lord, we come to thee

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Dearest Lord, we come to Thee
Ignorant, but Thou wilt teach us.
We are poor, but graciously
With Thy gifts Thou wilt enrich us.

2 We are weak, but Thou, O Lord,
Mercifully wilt defend us,
And we know it from Thy word,
That Thy Spirit Thou wilt send us.

3 Be our Shepherd good! O may
We obey Thy voice forever!
Dark and dangerous is our way:
Guide Thou us to life's blest river!
