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 To God, in realms above,
‘Tis sweet to pray;
To God, so rich in love,
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I call upon His name;
I do not call in vain;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!

2 As He is always near,
‘Tis sweet to pray;
As He will help to cheer,
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I know He cares for me;
I know His love so free;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!

3 At morning’s early light
‘Tis sweet to pray;
Then at the coming night
‘Tis sweet to pray.
I knock and I believe;
I ask and I receive;
Oh, it is mine to say,
‘Tis sweet to pray,
Sweet to pray!
