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.
1. Fountain of being, source of good!
At whose almighty breath
The creature proves our bane or food
Dispensing life or death:
2. Thee we address with humble fear;
Vouchsafe Thy gifts to crown;
Father of all, Thy children hear,
And send a blessing down.
3. O, may our souls for ever pine
Thy grace to taste and see;
Athirst for righteousness divine,
And hungry after Thee!
4. For this we lift our longing eyes
We wait the gracious word:
Speak, and our hearts from earth shall rise,
And feed upon the Lord.Source: The Cyber Hymnal #2008
