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, 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

Full Text

1 Lord God, our Father, Thou our chiefest stay,
Thou art our souls' delight for aye!
O hearken to our humble prayer:
Forgive our sins and us in mercy spare!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!

2 Lord Jesus Christ, God's Son, true light and way,
Shepherd of souls, to Thee we pray:
Thou wast for our salvation slain
Let not Thy death and sufferings be in vain!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!

3 Lord God, the Holy Ghost, Thee we implore
Be with us now and evermore!
Lead us to God, His grace to win,
And leave us not to perish in our sin!
Have mercy on us, O Lord!
