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.

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!
