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

Now, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

Full Text

1 Now, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To whom we for our children cry!
The good desir'd and wanted most,
Out of thy richest grace supply!

2 Error and ignorance remove,
The blindness of their heart and mind;
Give them the wisdom from above,
Spotless, and peaceable, and kind.

3 Answer on them the end of all
Our cares and pains, and studies here!
On them recover'd from their fall,
Stamp'd with the humble character?

4 Unite, what long has been disjoin'd,
Knowledge and vital piety;
Learning and holiness combin'd,
And truth and love let all men see.

5 Father, accept them through thy Son,
And ever by thy Spirit guide!
Thy wisdom in their lives be shown,
Thy name confess'd and glorified.
