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 Hear the heav’nly Father calling,
“Now My tender mercies prove,
I will send you richest blessings,
Sweetest tokens of My love.”

In the crown of My rejoicing,
Bright as morning stars shall shine,
Then who fear Me, they who love Me,
Saith the Lord, “They shall be Mine.”

2 “In the book of my remembrance,
Shall their names forever be,
Who have spoke oft together,
Who have ever tho’t of Me.” [Refrain]

3 Help me bow in humble rev’rence,
Father, low before Thy throne,
Consecrating all unto Thee,
Make and seal me all Thine own. [Refrain]
