As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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 Grant us dear Lord our daily bread,
Thus do we pray in time of need;
To him our precious lord we cry,
Who daily doth our wants supply.
2 Where nothing laid in store we see,
Where thousands faint and hungry be;
Yet may we trust and firmly b'lieve,
He find's a way for us to live.
3 When Jesus in the wilderness
Beheld, his follow'rs in distress,
Fatigued and hungry, weak and faint,
He pitti'd them to see their want.
4 And how to help them he well knew,
Altho' he ask'd what shall we do?
Our faith must always first be tried,
Before our wants are all supplied.
5 He then commands them to prepare,
And trust his providence and care;
Without a table being set,
The feast for them was soon complete.
6 When Jesus grants us his increase,
Then we partake the greater bliss;
Two little fish, five loaves of bread,
Some thousands of his follow'rs fed.
7 If here we follow Christ indeed,
He will support us as we need;
And when this present life is past
We feast with him in heav'n at last.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #LIX
