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

Full Text

1 Father of all! eternal mind!
Immensely good and great!
Thy children, form'd and bless'd by thee,
Approach thy heav'nly seat.

2 Thy name in hallow'd strains be sung:
We join the solemn praise;
To thy great name, with heart and tongue,
Our cheerful homage raise.

3 Thy mild, thy wise, and righteous reign,
Let ev'ry being own:
And in our minds, thy work divine,
Erect thy gracious throne.

4 As angels in the heav'nly worlds
Thy bless'd commands fulfil;
So may thy creatures here below
Perform thy holy will.

5 On thee we day by day, depend:
Our daily wants supply;
With truth and virtue feed our souls,
That they may never die.

6 Extend thy grace to ev'ry fault;
Oh! let thy love forgive.
Teach us divine forgiveness too,
Nor let resentments live.

7 Where tempting snares bestrew the way,
Permit us not to tread;
Or turn all real evil far
From our unguarded head.

8 Thy sacred name we would adore
With cheerful humble mind;
And praise thy goodness, pow'r and truth,
Eternal, unconfin'd!
