Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. To Thy temple holy, come we now with praise;
Thou, the meek and lowly, guide us to Thy ways;
To Thy courts ascending, though unworthy we;
Let our worship, blending, swell Thy harmony.

2. Not with ostentation, not with proud acclaim,
Come we, Lord and Master, to extol Thy name;
But with Christly spirit, humble and sincere,
Pleading but Thy merit, we Thy name revere.

3. For Thy Holy Spirit earnestly we plead,
Visit us, bestowing grace for all our need,
Sanctify our worship to Thy glory, Lord;
Grant us spirits eager to receive Thy Word.

4. To Thy temple holy, come we now with praise;
Thou, the meek and lowly, guide us to Thy ways;
So shall we, renewing every solemn vow,
Live for larger service if Thou bless us now.
