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 Father, before thee we come to adore thee,
To thee our hearts in devotion we raise;
Upward ascending, our glad voices blending,
Rise on the air in an anthem of praise.
Kingdoms and pow’r, and glory divine,
Blessing and honor, forever be thine;
Earth’s songs re-echo the voice of thy love,
Joining her strains with the chorus above.
2 While thou wert keeping thy watch o’er our sleeping;
Safely we rested, upheld by thine arm;
When came the dawning so fair of the morning,
Still thou wert with us to shield us from harm. [Refrain]
3 Grant us thy blessing, as humbly confessing,
Pardon we ask through the Savior alone;
Then shall the voice of happy rejoicing,
Echo in music around the great throne. [Refrain]Source: Pearls of Praise #99
