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.
1 The grace of God be with you hence,
And heav'nly aid afford,
To be your shield and sure defence,
To serve your blessed Lord.
2 Like faithful soldiers act your part,
And never yield to sin,
But seek the Lord with all your heart,
The precious prize to win.
3 Remember well the covenant,
That which you now have made,
To bear the Cross, be ye content',
With Christ your living head.
4 O keep in view the great reward,
Look to the life to come,
Which you shall have when Christ your Lord
Shall come to take you home.
5 Lord grant us grace with confidence,
To bear our crosses here,
That when thou callest us from hence,
We may with joy appear.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCVIII
