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

For Jesus' sake, 'tis thus we pray

Representative Text

1. "For Jesus' sake," 'tis thus we pray,
As humbly bowing day by day;
We ask for mercy, grace and love,
And peace which comes from heav'n above.

For Jesus' sake,
For Jesus' sake,
O, answer us for Jesus' sake,
O, answer us for Jesus' sake.

2. For Jesus' sake, O Lord, now bless
And comfort all in deep distress;
O shine upon us from on high,
And bring Thy saving mercy nigh. [Refrain]

3. For Jesus' sake, who gave his life
To save from sin and fear and strife;
His love, we sing it o'er and o'er,
And praise Him now and evermore. [Refrain]
