Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 O Thou best Gift of heaven!
Thou who Thyself hast given,
For Thou hast died!
This hast Thou done for me:
What have I done for Thee,
Thou Crucified,
Thou Crucified?

2 I long to serve Thee more:
Reveal an open door,
Saviour, to me;
Then, counting all but loss,
I'll glory in Thy cross,
And follow Thee,
And follow Thee.

3 Do Thou but point the way,
Grant strength Thee to obey;
Thy will be mine:
Then can I think it joy
To suffer or to die,
Since I am Thine,
Since I am Thine.

Amen.
