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 We are instructed by the Lord,
When we are taught his holy word:
The way of life is then reveal'd,
To those who to his precepts yield.

2 We pray to thee, O Father! kind,
Fill us with the dear Saviour's mind.
O make us willing to obey,
And follow Jesus in his way.

3 O may we serve him with delight,
Be meek and humble in his sight;
So shall we have our souls possess'd,
With all that makes us truly bless'd.
