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 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.
