Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

The Lord's Prayer

Let the words of my mouth, Let the words of my mouth

Tune: [Let the words of my mouth] (Leslie)

Full Text

Let the words of my mouth,
let the words of my mouth
and the meditations of my heart
be acceptable in thy sight;
wilt thou teach me how to serve thee,
wilt thou teach me how to pray?

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
thy kingdom come: thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread:
Forgive our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever amen.
