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.

Representative Text

1. Thine, most gracious Lord,
O make me wholly Thine—
Thine in thought, in word and deed,
For Thou, O Christ, art mine.

Refrain
Wholly Thine, wholly Thine;
Thou hast bought me, I am Thine;
Blessèd Savior, Thou art mine;
Make me wholly Thine.

2. Wholly Thine, my Lord,
To go when Thou dost call;
Thine to yield my very self
In all things, great and small. [Refrain]

3. Wholly Thine, O Lord,
In every passing hour;
Thine in silence, Thine to speak,
As Thou dost grant the power. [Refrain]

4. Wholly Thine, O Lord,
To fashion as Thou wilt,
Strengthen, bless and keep the soul
Which Thou hast saved from guilt. [Refrain]

5. Thine, Lord, wholly Thine,
For ever one with Thee—
Rooted, grounded in Thy love,
Abiding, sure and free. [Refrain]
