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

Representative Text

1 God of mercy, God of love,
Shine upon me from above,
Shield me by thy grace divine,
Let me know that I am thine.

Thine, forever,
Thine, forever,
Thine forever, thine to be
Joined with Christ eternally.

2 I was lost till Jesus came,
Blessed be his holy name;
Through his pure atoning blood,
I am reconciled to God. [Refrain]

3 Raise a song, oh, heart of mine,
To thy Maker, so divine,
Let my lips repeat his praise,
In the humble prayer I raise. [Refrain]

4 Through the darkness of the night,
To the breaking of the light;
God of mercy, God of love,
Shine on me from worlds above. [Refrain]
