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

Representative Text

1 O Lord, I humbly come to You
With this my earnest plea:
Lord, help me to become the man
That You would have me be.
Purge me from sin, cleanse me within;
And fill my life with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help me each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all I do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

2 O God, my Father, full of love,
Your grace abounds to me.
Lord, through my life may You alone
Be all my children see.
Purge us from sin, cleanse us within;
And fill our lives with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help us each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all we do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

3 And Lord, when all our days are done,
When life on earth is through,
We then will know life’s greatest joy:
Eternal life with You.
There we shall sing, loud anthems ring;
And as we gather ’round Your throne,
We’ll praise our Lord and King:
"Thanks be to God! Praise Him alone!"
But until then, O Lord, we pray,
To You the lost we’ll bring.
