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

Representative Text

1 Saviour divine, descend,
Our humble pray’r attend,
O give us rest—
Rest from our doubts and fears,
Rest from our griefs and tears,
Rest thro’-out all our years,
O make us blest.

2 Grant us Thy peace within,
And pow’r o’er ev’ry sin,
Our faith increase;
Help us to watch and pray,
That we from day to day
May walk the heav’nly way,
And never cease.

3 Lead us thro’ all this life,
Guard us thro’ all our strife,
The vict’ry give;
And when, the conflict o’er,
We come to Death’s dark shore,
Take us forevermore
With Thee to live.
