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.

Teacher:
Little eyes, looking wise,
Have you said your morning prayer?
Have you thought, as you ought,
Of our heavenly Father’s care?
Tell me what our prayer should be
When the morning light we see.

All:
Pleasant light, clear and bright,
Shining on the world today.
So may love from above
Shine along our upward way;
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

All:
Water clear, standing near,
Wash our hands and faces clean.
May the Lord, by His Word,
Wash our hearts from every sin.
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

Girls:
Cloak and hood, new and good,
Made to keep our bodies warm.
Words of truth, learned in youth,
Keep our souls from every harm.
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

Boys:
Boot or shoe, old or new,
Let us keep them clean and neat;
Let us pray that we may
Some day walk the golden street;
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

Girls:
Collar white, ribbons bright,
Apron, bonnet, shawl or dress;
So may we ever be
Clad in Jesus’ righteousness;
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

Boys:
Top or ball, treasures all,
Books and toys I dearly prize;
Yet may I, when I die,
To my heavenly treasures rise;
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

All:
Night or day, work or play,
In our hearts may be a prayer;
God can see if there be,
Well He knows what thoughts are there;
So let everything we see
Turn our thoughts, O Lord, to Thee.

Bliss, Philip, b. at Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, July 9, 1838. In 1864 he went to Chicago in the employ of Dr. George F. Root, the musician, where he was engaged in conducting musical Institutes, and in composing Sunday School melodies. Originally a Methodist, he became, about 1871, a choirman of the First Congregational Church, Chicago, and the Superintendent of its Sunday Schools. In 1874 he joined D. W. Whittle in evangelical work. To this cause he gave (although a poor man) the royalty of his Gospel Songs, which was worth some thirty thousand dollars. His death was sudden. It occurred in the railway disaster at Ashtabula, Ohio, Dec. 30, 1876. He had escaped from the car, but lost his life in trying to save his wife. His hymns are n… Go to person page >
