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 O for a heart to praise and pray,
To spend with Christ this sacred day,
For wings of faith to soar above,
And clasp his feet in arms of love.
2 I'd hold him fast, till he should give,
A word of grace and bid me live.
I'd plead his blood for guilt and sin,
Till he should cleanse from every stain.
3 On him, whose glories fill the skies,
I'd gaze and fix my wondering eyes,
Copy his beauties on my heart,
Till love transform in every part.
4 'Tis he can clothe my naked soul,
And by a word can make we whole;
Send peace and patience to the mind,
And give a heart to God resigned.
