We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O God of Peace, Thee We Implore

Representative Text

1 O God of peace, Thee we implore
On us Thy richest grace to pour,
And wholly sanctify us now,
As at the mercy-seat we bow.

2 Our spirit, soul, and body, Lord,
We offer up with one accord,
And pray that these may blameless be,
Until Thy presence we shall see.

3 Faithful and able art Thou, Lord,
Who callest by Thy gracious word;
Now touch our waiting hearts anew,
And sanctify us through and through.

Amen.
