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

Around thy table

Representative Text

1 On this Holy Lord's day morning,
Master of the earth and sea;
Stand we in Thy sacred presence,
Hearts and souls athirst for Thee.

2 As we come around this table,
Emblematic of Thy death;
Fill, O fill us with thy Spirit,
Till in Thee our souls shall rest.

3 May this loaf and cup remind us
Of the sacrifice Thou made,
Bleeding, dying for transgression
That our sins on Thee be laid.

4 As we look to Thee, the Author
Of all hope and joy and peace,
May our loyal consecration
To Thee, never, never cease.

5 Grant us in this sacred service,
To behold God's love anew;
May the vision fill and thrill us,
Till Thy holy will we do.
