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

Fountain of being, God of love

Fountain of being, God of love

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Fountain of being! God of love!
To thee our hearts we raise;
Thine all-sustaining power we prove,
And gladly sing thy praise.

2 Thine, wholly thine, we long to be;
Our sacrifice receive;
Made, and preserv'd, and sav'd by thee,
To thee ourselves we give.

3 Heavenward our every wish aspires;
For all thy mercies store,
The sole return thy love requires,
Is, that we ask for more.

4 For more we ask; we open, Lord,
Our hearts t'embrace thy will;
Renew us by thy heav'nly grace,
And with thy fulness fill.

5 Still may we find thy heavenly love
Shed in our hearts abroad;
So shall we ever live, and move,
And be with Christ in God.
