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, teach us how to pray,
Inspire and strengthen faith;
Upon these dull, cold hearts of clay,
Send down a quick’ning breath.

Refrain:
Lord, teach us how to pray,
The Spirit now impart,
That we, before Thy throne today,
May come with perfect heart.

2 Lord, teach us how to pray,
Show us the throne of grace,
Where mercy reigns in gentle sway,
Revealed in Jesus’ face. [Refrain]

3 Lord, teach us how to pray;
We know not what to seek,
Or how to ask the needed grace;
Or with what words to speak. [Refrain]

4 Lord, teach us how to pray;
Bring us within the vail,
Thro’ Christ, “the new and living way,”
Where pray’r can never fail. [Refrain]
