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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 In full and glad surrender
I give myself to thee,
thine utterly and only,
and evermore to be.

2 O Son of God, who lov'st me,
I will be thine alone;
and all I have and am, Lord,
shall henceforth be thine own!

3 Reign over me, Lord Jesus,

it shall be thine alone.

4 O come and reign, Lord Jesus,
rule over ev'rything!
and keep me always loyal
and true to thee, my King.
