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 God, to thee we raise our eyes

O God, to thee we raise our eyes

Published in 20 hymnals

Author: Charlotte Richardson

Richardson, Charlotte, née Smith, an American, was born of poor parents in 1775. In 1802 she was married to a Mr. Richardson, who died two years after. In 1806 several of her poetical compositions were published as Poems written on Different Subjects. From this work the hymn "0 God, to Thee we raise our eyes" (Resignation) is taken. It is altered from a poem on the death of her husband. (Nutter's Hymn Studies, &c, 1884.) --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
