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

Father, though thy name be holy

Father, though thy name be holy

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father, though Thy Name be holy,
High and lifted up Thy throne,
Still, Thou stoopest to the lowly,
And wilt such with favour own.
Heav'nly Father, Heav'nly Father,
Let us worship Thee alone.

2 Heaven itself cannot contain Thee,
Bright and glorious as Thou art;
Yet a little child may claim Thee
As a dweller in his heart.
Heavenly Father,
Let me not from Thee depart.

3 With Thy gracious presence cheer me,
Keep me in Thy perfect love;
All my journey be thou near me,
Bring me to Thy home above,
Heavenly Father,
May I all Thy fulness prove!

Amen.
