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.

Representative Text

1 Holy Father, we adore Thee,
And all honor to Thee give,
For the blessings, without number,
Freely granted while we live.
In our youthful days Thy mercy
Like a river calmly flows,
And in riper years ne’er failing
AS the solace of our woes.

2 Holy Father, Thou didst love us,
E’en while wand’ring far from Thee;
And didst send the blessed Saviour,
For a sacrifice to be.
In a manger low they laid Him,
‘Mid the beasts within the stall;
Angels guarding the Redeemer,
Who salvation brought to all.

3 Holy Father, send Thy Spirit
Into ev’ry waiting heart;
And let all receive with favor
What will prove the better part.
While to Thee, with tuneful voices,
Sweetest praises we will sing,
Heav’n and earth, in one grand chorus,
Loudest hallelujahs ring.
