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.

Love feast

United in affection dear

Published in 13 hymnals

Representative Text

1 United in affection dear,
With hearts on Jesus set;
We fell our God will meet us here,
Who in his name are met:
Our minds from worldly cares set free,
And fixed on joys above;
Each hope, each wish, each prayer shall be
To share our Saviour's love.

But we'll sing glory, glory, glory,
And glory be to God on high.

2 O could we, Lord, make others know
The pleasure which we feel;
What comforts from thy goodness show,
A sinner's wounds to heal:
Soon would the heedless vain and gay,
That goodness strive to prove;
Forsake their sins and seek the way
To share their Saviour's love. [Refrain]

3 If to reform their wicked ways
All gentle means should fail,
The terrors which thy power displays,
Against them may prevail:
Proud sinners, humbled by thy wrath,
Shall trembling kiss the rod:
O sweep the nations, shake the earth,
'Till all proclaim thee God. [Refrain]
