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.

Representative Text

1 Lord, we come with hearts aflame,
Seeking service in Thy Name;
All our youth and strength are Thine,
Given to help Thy work divine;
All our love and faith we bring,
They are Thine, O heavenly King.

2 Lord of hosts, we ask Thine aid,
Keep us ever unafraid;
Hold us loyal, hold us true
To the task we have to do;
Lead us on to victory;
We shall triumph praising Thee.

3 Lord of all, we take our stand,
Giving help at Thy command;
Eager, joyful, blithe, and strong,
Thrilled with love and filled with song,
Lord, we come with hearts aflame,
Seeking service in Thy Name.
