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, listen to our prayer,
Poor and sinful though we are;
Guilt confessing,
Give Thy blessing,
Grant Thy loving care.

O God our Father, Christ our King,
Now to Thee our hearts we bring;
Keep them ever, Blessed Saviour,
Till in heav’n Thy love we sing.

2 Strength is Thine; we often stray
From the pure and holy way;
Wilt Thou guide us,
Walk beside us,
Nearer every day! [Refrain]

3 Then may we, when life is o’er,
Stand with Thee on yonder shore;
Freed from sinning,
Heaven winning,
Praising evermore. [Refrain]
