Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Lord, we humbly bend before thee

Lord, we humbly bend before thee

Full Text

1 Lord, we humbly bow before Thee,
In thy courts on this Thy day;
Help us rightly to adore Thee,
Worthily to praise and pray:
Worldly cares and thoughts dispelling,
In our hearts Thy Spirit dwelling;
Teach us meekly to obey,
Learn Thy will, and keep Thy way.

2 Hear, O Lord, our full confession,
When to Thee we lift our cry;
Pardon speak for each transgression;
To our suppliant soul draw nigh:
Thy pure word our hearts directing,
Thy good grace our steps protecting;
Look on us with pitying eye,
All we need, O Lord, supply.
