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.

Representative Text

1 We bless Thy name, O Lord,
While in Thy house we meet,
To lift our grateful hearts to Thee,
And worship at Thy feet.

We bless Thy name, O Lord,
For Thy protecting care,
That gives to us with joy again,
This hallowed hour of prayer.

2 Thro’ all our fleeting years,
Thy word has been our stay,
It brought us safe within the fold,
When we were far away. [Refrain]

3 Do Thou our love inspire;
And still our faith increase;
Confirm our hopes and keep us, Lord,
In bonds of perfect peace. [Refrain]

4 In all our coming days,
O still our refuge be,
And may we all in simple faith,
Cling closer unto Thee. [Refrain]
