Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

O my Father, I would know thee

Full Text

1 O my Father, I would know Thee
And Thy holy will;
From Thy fount my thirsty spirit
Daily fill.

2 I would turn my highest powers
Into service sweet;
For all ministry to others
Make me meet.

3 As the bird who scorns earth's sadness,
Mounting on the wing,
Would my soul, her fret o'ercoming,
Rise and sing.

4 Sharing thus the Master's spirit,
Following where He trod,
I would rise through joyous service
Unto God.
