Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Lord Jesus, Though But Two or Three

Representative Text

1 Lord Jesus, though but two or three
In Your dear name assembled be,
You will among them show Your face
And bless them with Your saving grace.

2 In Your dear name again we meet
And worship humbly at your feet;
You will Your gracious Word fulfill
And cheer us with Your presence still.

3 Jesus, from whom all blessings flow,
Your peace and comfort now bestow;
Abide with us till life is o'er
And keep us Yours forevermore.
