We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 My heart a blissful theme indites;
Rehearse, my lips the song!
A lovely gift, the gift of Heaven,
Impels the strain along.

2 See where, amid a smiling train,
The modest bridegroom stands;
Exulting to complete his love,
In wedlock’s sacred bands!

3 Be his, the eloquence of truth,
The tenderness of soul!
With virtue bright be every scene,
Long as the years shall roll!

4 Fair maiden! now from home estranged,
And charms which none forget,
Accept the hand that wipes thy tears,
And softens thy regret!

5 Nor deem thy much loved parents lost;
Yet blooms a brighter joy;
United hearts, domestic bliss,
And cares that never cloy!

6 Confirm, in Heaven, our blessings, Lord!
On this new wedded pair!
To them be Thou a glorious throne,
And hear their mutual prayer!
