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 Lord who recommendeth pray'r,
Will always hear us when we pray;
His eyes behold us ev'ry where,
And knows all we do think or say.
2 Ask ye by faith, the Lord will give,
For this ye have the Saviour's word;
Seek ye the Lord, your souls shall live,
And taste the goodness of your Lord.
3 Seek ye by pray'r, and ye shall find
Access unto the throne of grace;
Ye shall partake the Saviour's mind,
Who is your life and righteousness.
4 With fervent pray'r knock at the gate,
Which opens to eternal life!
And persevere in ev'ry fate,
Through oppositions, war and strife.
5 Your fervent pray'rs are not in vain,
They surely will at last prevail;
Should God awhile from you refrain,
Yet his sure word shall never fail.
6 To pray for that which we do need,
And ask alone for Jesus' sake;
We shall for evermore succeed,
And all we need we shall partake.
