As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. Jehovah, God the Father, bless,
And Thy own work defend!
With mercy’s outstretched arms embrace
And keep us to the end!

2. Preserve the creatures of Thy love,
By providential care
Conducted to the realms above,
To sing Thy goodness there.

3. Jehovah, God the Son, reveal
The brightness of Thy face;
And all Thy pardoned people fill
With plenitude of grace!

4. Shine forth with all the Deity,
Which dwells in Thee alone;
And lift us up Thy face to see
On Thy eternal throne.

5. Jehovah, God the Spirit, shine,
Father and Son to show!
With bliss ineffable, divine,
Our ravished hearts o’erflow.

6. Sure earnest of that happiness
Which human hope transcends,
Be Thou our everlasting peace,
When grace in glory ends!
