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 hunger, watch, and prayer,
These forty days were passed
By Thee, O Jesu; and Thy love
Doth sanctify our fast.

2 Through fleshly lusts indulged,
Man lost his first estate;
Thou wouldst restore by leading us
Our flesh to subjugate.

3 Be with Thy Church, O Lord;
Our self-denials bless;
Accept the tears Thy children shed
O’er all their frowardness.

4 Forgive, most gracious Lord,
The follies we deplore,
Prevent us with Thy guiding hand
That we may sin no more.

5 So do Thou in our souls
The power of sin destroy;
And make us fit to worship Thee
With Easter’s holy joy.
