Hymnary Friends,

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.

O for a heart to praise and pray

O for a heart to praise and pray

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
