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 soul, aglow with love,
With love for God and man;
Rejoicing ev’ry passing day
To follow God’s own plan!

2 A soul to large that all mankind
Can be embrac’d therein;
The high, the low, the good, the bad,
Be counted all akin.

3 A soul so great that God alone
Can actuate its will;
That ev’ry pulse shall beat for him,
His purpose to fulfill.

4 A soul that loves his fellow-man
No matter what his creed;
That follows out the Golden Rule,
In thought and word and deed.

5 Lord, give us each a soul like this,
To live and work for thee;
And do our best to elevate
Entire humanity.
