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.
1 Lord, here am I to do thy will,
Incline my heart to thee;
O! may I willingly fulfil,
What thou commandest me.
2 To eat this bread and drink this cup,
As thy bless'd orders are,
To work in me a living hope,
Humility and fear.
3 Here I commemorate thy death,
Partake this bread and wine;
Cause me to eat and drink by faith,
And make thy blessings mine.
4 Lord, here I view thy love and grace,
Astonishing to me:
That I a wretch of human race,
Should e'er accepted be.
5 Should such a creature as I am,
Be made a welcome guest;
Dare I such mercies ever claim,
To share among the rest.
6 Can I be worthy of such grace!
A creature so defil'd;
Can that consist with righteousness:
That I should be a child.
7 Yes, boundless mercy did provide,
That sinners should be free:
When Christ the Lord for sinners died.
He also died for me.
8 His word and blessed ordinance,
Do fully shew and prove:
That I with thanks and reverence,
Should taste and know his love.
9 O! may my soul be mov'd within,
While I partake this feast;
My Saviour who saves me from sin,
Make me a worthy guest.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CXCII
