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 Here I lift my heart and hand,
Pledged to Thee, my Lord, I stand,
All the world I could but dross,
Glory only in Thy cross.

2 What have I to bring to Thee?
Naught but sin and misery;
What Thy love and power can tell?
Deep, immense, unsearchable.

3 Thro’ the year my life has been
Marked by waywardness and sin;
Yet Thou hast the wanderer blest,
Thro’ my Lord’s unrighteousness.

4 Now I come to Thee for light,
Guide and cheer in life’s dark night;
Now I rest upon Thy Word,
Dare to call Thee God and Lord.
