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, now our off’ring take,
Given for the Saviour’s sake;
Though but small our gift may be
Thou canst bless it, Lord, for Thee.

Bless the gift we bring today,
Bless our off’ring, Lord, we pray;
Take our sin and guilt away,
Make us wholly Thine.

2 Grant that we our part may do,
Showing that our hearts are true,
Serving Thee, our Saviour King,
In the off’ring that we bring. [Refrain]

3 Let us not forget to pray
In Thy holy name today;
Oh accept the gift we bring,
Own and bless us while we sing. [Refrain]

Author: Fanny Crosby
