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 my soul with thee unite!
And be thou, Saviour, mine:
Be thou my only soul's delight,
And make me ever thine.
2 Cause me to taste and feel thy love,
And know thee as thou art;
Thou art my riches from above,
And treasures of my heart.
3 Be thou my rock on which I build,
My tower and safe abode;
To thee I will submit and yield,
And pray to thee my God.
4 It is my fainting soul's desire,
Thy mercies to embrace;
May I obtain what I admire:
Thy love and pard'ning grace.
5 Could I possess thy blessed mind,
How happy should I be!
What joys and comforts wold I find,
To be espous'd to thee.
6 United by such heav'nly ties,
Would prove my greatest bliss!
And perfectly complete my joys,
And set my soul at peace.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.) #CCXC
