We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 God of our mother’s home of old,
Lord of her beauty, pow’r and grace,
We hail with joy the sacred fold,
And all her virtues gladly trace.

God of our mothers, guide our way,
In the paths of peace we pray.

2 Can we forget that sacred shrine,
Where mother knelt at evening hour,
Before the throne of grace divine,
And found the secret of her pow’r? [Refrain]

3 The altar fires of love we’ll burn,
In mem’ry of our mother’s home,
And never from her God to turn,
Or in the way of ins to roam. [Refrain]
