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

Savior, Thy love hath guided our fathers

Representative Text

1 Welcome among Thy flock of grace
With joyful acclamation,
Thou, Whom our Shepherd we confess!
Come, feed Thy congregation.
We own the doctrine of Thy cross
To be our sole foundation;
Accept from every one of us
The deepest adoration.

2 O Thou, the Church’s Head and Lord,
Who as a Shepherd leadest
Thy flock, and richly with Thy Word
And sacrament us feedest,
What shall we say? Lost in amaze,
Our hearts bow down before Thee;
For none sufficiently can praise,
Love, honor, or adore Thee.

3 Lord Jesus, for our call of grace,
To praise Thy Name in fellowship
We humbly meet before Thy face
And in Thy presence love-feast keep.
Shed in our hearts Thy love abroad,
Thy spirit’s unction now impart;
Grant we may all, O Lamb of God,
In Thee be truly one in heart.
