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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 One thot' I have, my ample creed,
So deep it is and broad;
And equal to my ev'ry need,
It is the tho't of God.

2 Each morn unfolds some fresh surprise,
I feast at life's full board;
And rising in my inner skies,
Shines forth the tho't of God.

3 At night my gladness is my pray'r;
I drop my daily load,
And ev'ry care is pillowed there
Upon the tho't of God.

4 I ask not far before to see,
But take in trust my road;
Life, death, and immortality
Are in my tho't of God
