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 In faith we lift our plea;
Have mercy, O our Saviour!
They shall receive Thy favor
Who call on Thee.
From Thee we nothing hide,
Our fears and sings bewailing;
Thou knowest, Lord, each failing,
And all beside.

2 We only truly live,
O Christ, in Thee believing:
All things from Thee receiving,
As feely give.
In holy praise to Thee,
Love, peace and joy upspringing,
Fill more than earth with winging—
Eternity.

3 Grant us such faith to live,
And draw us daily nearer.
A faith to see Thee clearer,
Dear, Lord, now give.
Thus shall our every breath Confess
Thy name for ever,
In faith that naught shall sever,
In life or death.
