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 Holy Father, send Thy blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Let them all, Thy love confessing,
Be to Thee forever dear.

Send the blessing, send the blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Send the blessing, send the blessing,
Grant us all Thy love and cheer.

2 Blessed Saviour, who in meekness
Didst vouchsafe a child to be,
Guide their steps and help their weakness,
Bless, and make them like to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Spread Thy wings of mercy o’er them,
Grant Thy Spirit from above;
Be their shield, and go before them,
Give them peace and joy and love. [Refrain]
