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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Upraised from sleep, to Thee we kneel,
As day doth break;
To Thee, O Lord, aloud we sing,
To Thee the song of angels bring;
For mercy’s sake,
Oh, pity take,
O Holy, Holy, Holy.

2 Thou, Lord, hast from my couch of rest
Uplifted me;
Oh, light my mind; oh, light my heart,
And ope my lips to take their part
In praising Thee,
Blest Trinity,
O Holy, Holy, Holy.
