Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

My gracious God, accept my prayer

My gracious God, accept my prayer

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 My gracious God, accept my pray'r!
If e'er thy love divine
Should prosper my well-meaning care,
And wealth should e'er be mine:

2 May humble worth without a fear
Approach my open door;
Nor may I ever view a tear,
Regardless, from the poor.

3 O bless me with an honest mind,
Above all selfish ends;
Humanely warm to all mankind,
And cordial to my friends.

4 Thee in remembrance may I bear,
To thee my tribute raise;
Conclude each day with fervent pray'r,
And wake each morn with praise.

5 Thus through my life may I approve
The gratitude I owe;
And share at length thy bliss above,
Whose laws I keep below!
