Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy God and Father be!"
Say thou to Him: "O Father mine,
I am Thy child; yes, truly Thine!"

2 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy Lord and Saviour be!"
Say thou to Him: "O Saviour mine,
I will no service know but thine!"

3 God spake, my child, God spake to thee:
"I will thy Light and Comfort be!"
Say thou to Him: "Light, Comfort mien,
Dwell Thou in me; my heart is Thine!"

4 When baptized in His Name, to thee
God spake, my child, thus tenderly;
Consider well His words divine,
Say ever: "Lord, I will be Thine!"
