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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Thankful hearts today we bring

Representative Text

1 Thankful hearts today we bring,
Dear, loving Saviour;
Help us now thy praise to sing,
Dear, loving Saviour.

Keep thy children now, we pray,
Ever in the shining way,
Lead us gently ev'ry day,
Dear, loving Saviour.

2 In thy tender, watchful care,
Dear, loving Saviour;
Fold and keep us safely there,
Dear, loving Saviour. [Chorus]

3 Never let a naughty word,
Dear, loving Saviour;
From our youthful lips be heard,
Dear, loving Saviour. [Chorus]

4 Train us up to live with thee,
Dear, loving Saviour;
Where thy glory we shall see,
Dear, loving Saviour. [Chorus]
