As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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.
1 How oft the day of God returns
To shed its quick'ning beams;
And yet how slow devotion burns,
How languid are its flames.
2 Accept our faint attempts to love;
Our sins, O Lord, forgive;
We would be like Thy saints above,
And praise Thee while we live.
3 Increase, O Lord, our faith and hope,
And fit us to ascend
Where the assembly ne'er breaks up,
Thy worship ne'er shall end;
4 When we shall with the ransomed throng,
The Savior's praise proclaim,
And give in an eternal song
All glory to His Name.Source: Evangelical Lutheran hymnal: with music #308a
