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.
Harry Plantinga

O Lord divine, we come to pray

Representative 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.
