Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I bind my heart this tide
to the Galilean's side,
to the wounds of Calvary,
to the Christ who died for me.

2 I bind my soul this day
to the neighbour far away,
to the stranger near at hand
in this town, and in this land.

3 I bind my heart and soul
to the God, the Lord of all,
to the God, the poor one's friend,
and the Christ whom he did send.

4 I bind myself to peace,
to make strife and envy cease.
My God, fasten sure the cord
of my service to the Lord!
