Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Thou delightest, O Lord, when Thy children draw near
To worship and praise and confess;
Now banish our sorrow, our doubt and our fear;
Be present to guide and to bless.

2 Touch our ears with Thy finger, and then we shall hear
Soft voices that speak from Thy Word;
Touch our eyes into seeing, and then shall appear
The glory of Jesus, our Lord.

3 Be the words of our tongues, and the theme of our song;
Be our purpose, our praise, and our prayer;
And be to us here what Thou art to the throng
Of angels that worship Thee there.
