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.
1 To be a holy sacrifice
Is what each christian ought,
As the Apostle testifies:
In action, word and thought.
2 The pow'r and faculties of mind,
And all the soul desires,
Must be to have the will resign'd
To all the Lord requires.
3 Each member of the body, should
Thus have their rule and guide,
To act and do the best they could,
Be ever more employ'd:
4 The heart must be within renew'd,
Endow'd with heav'nly grace;
Conform'd unto the living God
And all his righteous ways.
5 The world with all its great esteem,
Real christians won't pursue;
To serve the Lord is all their aim
As well as they can do.
6 The christian humble, low and meek
Will find establish'd rest;
They find such treasures as they seek
Which makes them truly bless'd.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XXXIV
