Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
1 Now keep me stedfast dearest Lord,
That I may serve thee with regard;
As one baptiz'd in thine own way,
And never let me from thee stray.
2 LORD give me strength for ev'ry day,
To do thy will, rejoice and pray;
Long have I liv'd and did not know
My strength must all form JESUS flow.
3 The work that he ahth wroguth for us
Doth testify it must be thus;
Come praise the Lord, 'tis he I know,
And of his mercy share below.
4 Come Lord, come quickly, come away,
Come quickly Lord, and with me stay;
Come Lord, and feed we with the sheep
And from hencefoth forever keep.
5 Me where thy sweetest pastures be,
Till thou shall take me up to thee;
Till then when on my knees I cry,
Lod hear my prayer, send quick supply.Source: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns: done under the appointment of the Philadelphian Association #CLXXIV
