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! I go to Thee!
Father! Oh! show to me
Mercy and love;
Earthly my thoughts have been:
Oh! make me pure within!
Lead me above!

2 Deeply believing in
Thy love relieving sin,
Father, I come!
Oh! take Thy erring child,
Driven by passion wild,
Oh! take me home!

3 Lord, let me rest in Thee!
Thine ever blest to be;
Wise in my youth;
Striving Thy will to do;
Aiding my fellows, too!
Cleansed by Thy truth!
