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 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.
