We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

O Lord, I am not worthy

Representative Text

1 O Lord, I am not worthy
That thou should'st come to me;
But speak the word of comfort,
My spirit healed shall be.

2 And humbly I'll receive thee,
The Bridegroom of my soul,
No more by sin to grieve thee
Or fly thy sweet control.

3 Eternal Holy Spirit,
Unworthy though I be,
Prepare me to receive him
And trust the Word to me.

4 Increase my faith, dear Jesus,
In thy real presence here,
And make me feel most deeply
That thou to me art near.
