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 God of love and truth

Representative Text

1 O God of love and truth,
Here see the Church's youth
Coming to Thee,
Praising Thy holy name,
Spreading abroad Thy fame,
And for Thy cause aflame
Ever to be.

2 Grant us that we fulfill
Thy good and gracious will
Each day and hour;
Give strength to heart and soul,
Make Thou our spirit whole,
Help us to reach our goal,
Kept by Thy pow'r.

3 In all we say and do
May we to Thee be true,
Thou God of love,
Till we our work have done,
Till we our course have run,
Till we the crown have won
With Thee above.

Professor Paul E. Kretzman led a group of Lutherans who left church fellowship with some Lutheran congregations in 1956 after he was charged with teaching error in class. He and his followers organized the Lutheran Churches of the Reformation. He wrote several Bible Commentaries and translated many hymns.
