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 Lord, Our Lord

Full Text

1 O Thou great almighty Lord,
Everlasting gracious Lord,
By the saints of old adored,
Rev’rently by saints adored,
Unto Thee with joy we raise,
Constantly with joy we raise,
Our united, grateful praise,
Unto Thee our grateful praise.

Unto Thee praise shall be;
King divine, we are Thine.
Hear our prayer, hear our prayer,
World without end.

2 We, like sheep, have gone astray,
From Thy care have gone astray.
We have wandered far away,
In the desert far away,
In distress to Thee we cry,
Night and day to Thee we cry:
Save us, Shepherd, or we die,
Seek and save us, or we die! [Refrain]
