We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Father, We Come

Representative Text

1 Father, we come in Jesus’ name,
To worship at this place;
Do Thou with love our hearts inflame,
And give us peace and grace.

2 We know not how to come aright,
Except Thou be our guide;
Fill Thou our hearts with heav’nly light,
And with us now abide.

3 Give grace to hear and sing Thy praise,
And grace for Thee to live;
Keep us, O Lord, in all Thy ways,
To us Thy Spirit give.

4 Moment by moment be Thou near,
And keep us in Thy love;
And when our life is ended here,
Take us to Thee above.
