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 Heav’nly Father, hear our cry,
In great mercy draw Thou nigh;
Sinful, weak, unholy we,
Help alone must come from Thee.

2 Heav’nly Father, hear our pray’r,
Give assurance of Thy care;
Keep securely ev’ry day,
Guard us all along the way.

3 Heav’nly Father, hear we pray,
Give Thy Spirit day by day;
With Him ever as our guide,
We are safe whate’er betide.
