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 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.
