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.
1 O May I know the grace of God!
And taste his love divine;
His love in my soul shed abroad,
Could make the Saviour mine.
2 To dwell in God, and God in me,
Would perfect me in love--
How bles'd and happy would I be
In him to live and move.
3 No slavish fear torments the heart:
Where love an dwell and reign!
The pow'rs of darkness must depart,
The soul is freed from pain.
4 We love him who hath lov'd us first:
Who bought us with his blood;
Who made us bless'd when we were curs'd,
And enemies to God.
5 To love the Lord, thus we are bound
Our fellow-men likewise!
Or our profession will be found,
But vanity and lies.
6 Lord! make me faithful and sincere,
Make me to watch and pray:
That I may never need to fear
Of being cast away.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XCIX
