Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Father hear, Father hear,
As Thy children bow before Thee,
Be Thou near, be Thou near,
Send Thy light on Thy word divine.

Hear our pray’r, hear our pray’r,
Father O hear us, hear Thou our pray’r.

2 May we heed, may we heed,
As we learn Thy lessons holy,
Do Thou lead, do Thou lead,
In the way of Thy truth divine. [Refrain]

3 Living bread, living bread,
Break Thou unto us we pray Thee,
Souls are fed, souls are fed,
Evermore by Thy word divine. [Refrain]
