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 I ask, O Lord, in simple faith
This one request of Thee,
That, consecrated to Thy work,
My life henceforth may be;
O teach me how the lost to win,
Poor wand’ring souls to seek,
Direct my footsteps where to go
And give me words to speak.

2 O grant me strength to labor still,
Where’er Thou bid’st me toil,
To persevere with cheerful heart
Tho’ rough may be the soil;
If called to suffer for Thy sake,
O let me not repine,
But follow where my duty leads,
And have no will but Thine.

3 Thy blessed Spirit may I show,
Thy pure, unselfish love;
And thro’ Thy grace some wan’rer guide
To life and peace above;
To watch and wait and work for Thee,
Be this my constant care;
O grant me access to Thy throne,
Thro’ humble, grateful prayer.
