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.
1 O to thy servants, Lord, return,
And speedily relent!
As we of our misdeeds, do thou
Pf our just doom, repent.
2 To satisfy and cheer our souls,
Thy early mercy send;
That we may all our days to come
In joy and comfort spend.
3 Let happy times with large amends
Dry up our former tears;
Or equal at the least the term
Of our afflicted years.
4 To all thy servants, Lord, let this
Thy wond'rous work be known,
And to our offspring yet unborn,
Thy glorious pow'r be shown.
5 Let thy bright rays upon us shine,
Give thou our work success;
The glorious work we have in hand
Do thou vouchsafe to bless.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #P.XX
