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 Instruct me in Thy statutes, Lord,
Thy righteous pats display;
And I from them through all my life,
Will never go astray.
2 If Thou true wisdom from above,
Wilt graciously impart,
To keep Thy perfect laws I will
Devote my zealous heart.
3 Direct me in the sacred ways
To which Thy precepts lead;
Because my chief delight has been
Thy righteous paths to tread.
4 Do Thou to thy most just commands
Incline my willing heart;
Let no desire of worldly wealth
From Thee my thoughts divert.Source: Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America #368
