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

O Thou Who hearest prayer, The God of power and might

O Thou Who hearest prayer, The God of power and might

Author: William Edwards
Tune: SWABIA (Spiess)
Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Thou who hearest prayer,
The God of power and might,
To seek Thy face be all our care
And our supreme delight.

2 O God of grace and love,
Regard us from Thy throne;
Send down to us the Heavenly Dove,
And seal us as Thine Own.

3 We have no other trust
But Thy dear Sacrifice;
Our hope, Thou Holy One and Just,
Thou never wilt despise.

4 Come with Thy saving strength,
With healing virtue come;
And let Thy guiding hand at length
Conduct us safely home.
