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.
1 Encourag'd by thy holy word,
Thy churches thus coven'd, O Lord
By us, their dole gates elect,
Crave thy blest Spirit to direct.
2 O guide us by thy grace, to know,
What best promotes thy cause below;
And may our consultations be,
Fresh means to lead us, Lord to thee.
3 Lord let the glory of thy name,
And Zion's int'rest be our aim;
From ev'ry selfish motive free,
Devoted wholy, Lord to thee.
4 Associated year by year,
From all thy churches may we hear,
Of souls that to thy altars flee,
Dependant wholy Lord on thee.
5 The labours of thy servants bless,
In turning souls to righteousness;
That many converts they may see:
Yet give the glory Lord to thee.Source: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns: done under the appointment of the Philadelphian Association #CCVII
