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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I would be thine, most holy Lord,
Oh, fill my heart with love divine,
And teach me from thy precious word,
That I may yet still brighter shine.

Make me thine, yes, thine,
Thine alone, precious Lord, would I be;
Make me thine, only thine,
Dear Lord, remember me.

2 Ah, yes, to thee I fain would live,
To thee, who for my ransom died;
Teach me to pray, that I may give
My life and all I have beside. [Refrain]

3 Thy sinless mind in me reveal,
Thy nature to my soul impart,
And all my future life shall tell
The fulness of a loving heart. [Refrain]

4 Then fill my soul with holy fire,
Thou sacred spirit, from above;
Make all ablaze with pure desire;
Expand my heart with heavenly love. [Refrain]
