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.
Harry Plantinga


O dearest Lord, give me an heart

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O dearest LORD, give me an heart
Inflam'd with love to thee;
That thro' thy tedious toil and smart,
My soul may happy be.

2 I want, O LORD, from sin to flee,
And in thy wounds to rest;
Bid me by faith to come near to thee
And lean upon thy breast.

3 Still let a sense of what thou'st done,
In my heard heart be felt;
That by the love to me thou'st shewn,
My inmost soul may melt.

4 O may I never, never fain,
Refresh'd by streams of love;
Till in thy glory, as a saint,
I live with those above.

5 O may I now my all give up,
T thee my dearest LORD;
And wait with all thy saints to sup
Around the festal borad.
