Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

My soul, inspired with sacred love, God's holy name for ever bless

My soul, inspired with sacred love, God's holy name for ever bless

Full Text

1 My soul, inspired with sacred love,
God's holy Name for ever bless;
Of all His favours mindful prove,
And still Thy grateful thanks express.

2 'Tis He that all thy sins forgives,
And after sickness makes thee sound;
From danger He thy life retrieves,
By Him with grace and mercy crown'd.

3 The Lord abounds with tender love
And unexampled acts of grace;
His waken'd wrath doth slowly move,
His willing mercy flies apace.

4 God will not always harshly chide,
But with His anger quickly part;
And loves His punishment to guide
More by His love than our desert.

5 As far as 'tis from east to west,
So far has he our sins removed;
Who, with a father's tender breast,
Has such as fear Him always loved.
