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, make us loving,
gentle, thoughtful, kind;
Fill us with Thy Spirit,
make us of Thy mind.
Help us love each other,
more and more each day,
Help us follow Jesus,
in the narrow way.

Refrain
We would learn of Jesus,
Help us here below,
Follow in His footsteps,
Who hath loved us so.

2. Father, we would ever,
live as in Thy sight;
Thou dost know our longings
after what is right.
Fill our hearts with kindness
as we onward go,
Teach us to be loving,
Thou hast loved us so. [Refrain]

3. Help us to remember,
Thou art ever near;
Teach us lovingkindness,
tenderness and cheer.
There is much of sorrow,
in this world below;
Father, make us loving,
Thou hast loved us so. [Refrain]
