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 In unity and peace,
O, may I ever live!
And not in strife or bitterness,
But bear and to forgive.
2 May I of Jesus learn!
A meek and humble mind;
And may it be my chief concern
To be for ever kind.
3 May I with patience bear!
What may be laid on me;
Not in presumption or dispair:
In neither let me be.
4 The workings of thy love!
And pow'r of grace divine,
Can fit me for thy courts above
And seal me ever thine.
5 O! may the Gospel word,
With all the means of grace,
Fit me to love thee, O my Lord!
To serve thee all my days.
