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.

Representative Text

1 Draw near us to-day, and a blessing impart,
Dear Lord, to each humble and penitent heart.
Whose joy is to follow our Master and Lord
In each blessed ord'nance we find in thy word.

2 The pride we have cherished we gladly forsake;
Now of thy meek spirit, O, let us partake!
And as we obey, may our longing hearts prove
'Tis blessed to serve one another in love.

3 If ill-will or envy have darkened our life,
May pure love now enter, expelling all strife;
With brotherly kindness each other we greet,
As now in God's presence we wash the saints' feet.

4 O, lend us the power of thy presence Divine,
Our hearts to the love of this duty incline,
And wash from our lives every unholy stain,
Till naught of impurity with us remain.
