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, 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

Full 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]
