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.

O Holy Lord our God

Full Text

1 O Holy Lord, our God,
By heavenly hosts adored,
Hear us, we pray:
To Thee the cherubim,
Angels and seraphim,
Unceasing praises bring,
Their homage pay.

2 Here give Thy word success,
And this Thy servant bless,
His labors own;
And while the sinner's Friend,
His life and words commend,
Thy Holy Spirit send,
And make Him known.

3 May every passing year
More happy still appear
Than this glad day;
With numbers fill the place,
Adorn Thy saints with grace,
Thy truth may all embrace,
O Lord, we pray.

Amen.
