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.

May God accept our vow

May God accept our vow

Representative Text

1 May God accept our vow,
Our sacrifice receive,
Our heart's devout request allow,
Our holy wishes give!

2 O Lord, Thy saving grace
We joyfully declare;
Our banner in Thy Name we raise--
"The Lord fulfil our prayer!"

3 Now know we that the Lord
his chosen will defend;
From heaven will strength divine afford,
And will their prayer attend.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
