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. Had I the pinions of a dove,
How would I fly away,
To realms of light and joy and love,
In portals of the day!
O give me the wings of a dove,
To fly and be at rest,
To seek the bliss of Heav’n above
Which those who find are blest.
2. Tho’ thru this weary world I tread,
At morn, to God my friend,
At noon, and e’er I seek my bed,
My prayer shall still ascend. [Refrain]
3. O cast thy burden on the Lord,
Whose goodness doth sustain;
The tender mercies of thy God
Shall ease thy load of pain. [Refrain]
4. So thou unmoved shalt pass along,
Thru life’s short fleeting day,
And carry in thy heart a song,
Until the sunset ray. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #7494
