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 Hymnary.org, 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, 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]
