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 Tremblingly, as once of old,
Esther, in the royal court,
For a people captive sold,
Mercy and deliverance sought.

2 So I come, my king, to Thee,
Trembling at Thy feet I fall;
Stretch Thy scepter over me,
Let me hear Thy gracious call.

3 I have naught to offer Thee,
Naught to plead in sin’s defense,
Yet unto Thy courts I flee;
Jesus, do not drive me thence.

4 Thou hast crowned me with Thy love,
Summoned me Thy name to bear;
Bending from Thy throne above,
King of Heaven, hear my prayer.

5 King of grace and love untold,
Come and feast with me today,
Not as Esther’s king of old,
But forevermore to stay.
