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

Lord, what is man, that child of pride

Representative Text

1 Lord, what is man, that child of pride,
That boasts his high degree?
If one poor moment he be left,
He sinks, and where is he?

2 In Thee I live, and move, and am;
Thou deal'st me out my days;
As Thou renew'st my being, Lord,
Let me renew Thy praise.

3 From Thee I am, through Thee I am,
And for Thee I must be;
'Tis better for me not to live
Than not to live to Thee.

4 My God, Thou art my glorious Sun,
Bu whose bright beams I shine:
As Thou, Lord, ever art with me,
Let me be ever Thine.

5 Thou art my living Fountain, Lord,
Whose streams on me do flow;
Myself I render unto Thee,
To whom myself I owe.

6 As Thou, Lord, an immortal soul
Hast breathéd into me;
So let my soul be breathing forth
Immortal thanks to Thee.
