Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

1 Heav’nly Father, bless Thy children,
As we worship Thee today;
Fill each heart with joy and fervor,
As we sing or as we pray.
Heav’nly Father, bless Thy children,
Teach, oh teach us how to pray;
May we love and serve Thee ever,
Daily tread the narrow way.

2 Heav’nly Father, make us thankful,
For the blessings Thou doth give;
And the promise, if we’re faithful
We shall come with Thee and live.
Heav’nly Father, all we ask Thee
Is in the dear Saviour’s name,
Who came down to earth from Heaven,
To relieve from sin and shame.

3 Heav’nly Father, bless Thy children,
Ere we leave Thy house today;
Fill us with Thy Holy Spirit
Saviour wash our sins away.
Heav’nly Father, may we praise Thee,
Thou the Spirit, Three in One
And when earthly cares are ended,
Hear the blessed words “well done.”
