Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O gracious God, whose constant care

Full Text

1. O gracious God, whose constant care
Supplies our golden days,
Whose joyous fellowship we share
At work, at rest, in play and prayer—
Accept our heartfelt praise.

2. We thank Thee, Father, for each word,
Each thought-revealing truth,
For prophet voices gladly heard,
For darling dreams, for friends who stirred
The fragile wills of youth.

3. Companion of this sacred hour,
Renew in us each day
Our lofty purpose; grant us power
That worthy thoughts in deeds may flower,
In Christlike lives, we pray.
