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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus, I bring to thee,
Humbly and trustingly,
All of my heart, all of my heart;
Fill it with love divine,
All of its dross refine,
Seal it, and make it thine
In ev'ry part.

2 O precious Christ, come in,
Wash me from all my sin,
Make pure my soul, make pure my soul,
Cleanse it from ev'ry stain;
Let not a spot remain,
At any cost of pain,
O! make me whole.

3 Take, Jesus, all my pow'rs,
My moments and my hours,
And let them be, and let them be,
Used henceforth but for thee,
In faithful ministry,
Constantly, lovingly,
Only for thee.
