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 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.
