Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

Teach us to pray!
O Father, we look up to Thee,
And this our one request shall be,
Teach us to pray!

Teach us to pray!
A form of words will not suffice,
The heart must bring its sacrifice:
Teach us to pray!

Teach us to pray!
To whom shall we Thy children turn?
Teach Thou the lesson we would learn,
Teach us to pray!

Teach us to pray!
To Thee alone our hearts look up,
Prayer is our only door of hope,
Teach us to pray!
