We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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.
