Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

O Lord divine, we come to pray

Full Text

1 O Lord divine, we come to pray,
This bridal pair to bless,
Lead Thou them on in holy ways
And paths of righteousness.

2 Grant knowledge, wisdom, light and love,
That Spirit-filled they be;
A light and pattern ever true,
Extolling only Thee!

3 Therefore again we pray, dear Lord,
Bless Thou their journey here;
Unite their hearts and hands as one,
In Christian love sincere,

4 When this short span of life is o'er,
Their race on earth is run;
Forever may Thee Lord adore
With that celestial throng.
