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 Through thy all-atoning merit,
In thy holy name alone,
Weak and helpless, yet believing,
Lord, we come before thy throne.

Let thy blessing rest upon us,
Like the early morning dew;
From the well of thy salvation
May we draw and drink anew.

2 Hear the prayers that now are rising
On the wings of faith to thee;
Feed our souls that now are hungry
With the bread of life so free. [Refrain]

3 We are looking, waiting, longing,
For a deeper work within;
For a perfect consecration
Of our hearts from ev’ry sin. [Refrain]

4 May the grace be with us ever,
In thy mercy may we hide,
And, through all our journey homeward,
Be thou still our Shield and Guide. [Refrain]
