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.
1 I bless the Lord,
Who gives his word,
To rule and guide me right;
To hear him say,
Love and obey,
Affords supreme delight.
2 A holy joy,
With sacred transport flows,
From truth divine,
I feel it mine,
To give my soul repose.
3 With sacred love,
My passions move,
I burn with strong desire;
With holy aim,
And inward flame,
I feel my soul on fire.
4 By grace refin'd
My soul inclin'd,
Shall consecrate my days,
As due to none
But God alone,
And give him all the praise.
