Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

We bow to thee, O Lord on high

Representative Text

1 We bow to thee, O Lord, on high;
To thee our hearts incline;
Submitting to thy word, we pray,
Thy will be done, not mine.

Refrain:
Lord, as this solemn rite we keep,
With joy we worship thee;
May we with humble hearts, O Lord,
Thy faithful servants be.

2 The highest station here on earth
Is at our Saviour's feet;
'Tis there we learn our Master's will,
We find the mercy seat. [Refrain]

3 Our Saviour, tho' our Master, Lord,
In true humility.
By action taught that we might see
The great must servants be. [Refrain]

4 A pattern he did kindly give
To His disciples true:
He washed their feet, then said to them,
"Do as I've done to you." [Refrain]

5 Then afterwards he said to them,
"Go forth (I go with you),
And teach all nations ev'rything
I've commanded you to do." [Refrain]

6 Then teach us, Lord, to do thy will,
Whatever that may be:
May thy free grace attend us here,
And in eternity. [Refrain]
