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 to thy servants, Lord, return

O to thy servants, Lord, return

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
