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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O for a nobler, brighter life,
Made pure by Jesus’ love,
O for a spirit, meek and mild,
Like unto His above;
O for a heart with longing filled,
To do my Master’s will,
From ev’ry dross refined and pure,
A heart that Christ can fill.

2 O for a willing heart and hand,
In readiness alway,
To gladly do His blessed will,
Thro’ all the happy day;
O for a mind intent on Christ,
Wherever I may be,
O for a faithful, fearless stand,
Always, dear Lord, for Thee.
