Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Fountain of being, God of love

Fountain of being, God of love

Published in 3 hymnals

Full 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.
