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 Father almighty, bless us with your blessing:
answer in love your children's supplication;
Hear now our prayer, the spoken and unspoken;
hear us, Eternal God.

2 Christ of compassion, carry all who seek you
to pastures green beside the peaceful waters;
Most tender guide, in ways of cheerful duty
lead us, good Shepherd.

3 Mother of mercy, from your watch and keeping
no space can part, nor hour of time remove us;
Give us your good, and save us from our evil,
Infinite Spirit.
