Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Jehovah see my open heart

Full Text

1 JEHOVAH, see my open heart,
if it is haughty grown;
Or if mine eyes are rais'd aloft,
unless to Thee alone;
If I in any things too great
and high for me aspire,
To exercise my self; or if
too high is my desire.

2 Or if I do not now compose
my soul to quiet rest,
Ev'n as a young and weaned child,
wean'd from the mother's breast.
3 Let Isr'el then look to the LORD,
and his kind aid implore;
And on his tender care relie,
henceforth and evermore,
