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

The Worker's Prayer

Representative Text

1 O Thou who dwellest in the sky,
Whose praise the ransom'd sing,
Help me to humbly now draw nigh,
My "prayer of faith" to bring.
My "prayer of faith" to bring.

2 I bow before Thy mercy seat,
Where Love and Peace abound,
For God and sinners there can meet
Upon Redemption ground.
Upon Redemption ground.

3 My Jesus, make me pure within,
And fill me with Thy Love;
And keep me from the paths of sin,
By grace sent from above.
By grace sent from above.

4 Oh! give me power to preach Thy word,
With no uncertain sound,
And ever magnify the blood,
Where peace alone is found.
Where peace alone is found.

5 May all my days and hours be spent
In working, Lord, for Thee,
That other souls may know thy love
Thro' all eternity.
Thro' all eternity.
