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

Representative Text

1 The Lord love thee
And keep thee
Upon the land and sea;
And cause His face
In ev’ry place
To shine divine on thee.

2 The Lord bless thee
And rest thee,
Where’er thy journeys be;
And never cease
To give His peace
By day and night to thee.

3 The Lord guide thee
And bring thee
To where the home-shores be;
And ev’ry hour
In joyous pow’r
His blessings lay on thee.
