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 source of Life, O hear my pray’r,
For guidance thro’ each day;
May thy pure guiding angels keep
My feet in wisdom’s way.

Hear my pray’r, O hear my pray’r,
Guard and keep me in thy care;
Loving Father, hear my pray’r,
Hear, O hear my heartfelt pray’r!

2 Thou source of Light, O hear my prayer,
Send sunshine to my soul;
Be thou my guide on life’s dark sea
When billows round me roll. [Refrain]

3 Thou source of Love, O hear my prayer,
Let me not live in vain;
Teach me to place more trust in three,
Make all my duties plain. [Refrain]

4 Thou source of Truth, O hear my prayer,
That all mankind may know
Our lov’d ones can return to earth,
And bring sweet heav’n below. [Refrain]
