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 Into Thy service, Lord, Thou callest me;
Faithful in all my work help me to be;
Emptied of self and sin, with only Christ within,
Aid me lost souls to win from sin to Thee.

2 Thou gav’st Thyself for me,Lord, Thou art mine;
I give myself to Thee, Savior divine;
Now for Thine own name’s sake, I full surrender make;
All I possess now take, all, all is Thine.

3 That I Thy will may do, show me the way;
For this my strength renew from day to day;
This is my earnest plea, Thine wholly, Lord, to be,
Serve ever only Thee, and Thee obey.
