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.
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.
