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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Lord, I come now before You, to lay my life at Your feet.
Sweep now over my spirit, and make me complete.
Lord, please give me a new heart, and free me from my sin.
I want to be holy, and wholly pure within.

2 Lord, please quiet my spirit, that I may hear when You call.
Free me from earthly passions, and don’t let me fall.
Fill me full with Your presence; surround me with Your love.
Lord, I want to know You, and seek things only above.

3 Teach me, Lord, to be faithful, Your Word and will to obey.
Help me follow You only, and never to stray.
Lord, please make me Your servant, and fill me with Your grace.
I want to live for You, both now and then, face to face.
