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

Representative Text

1 We come, O Lord, to Thee,
Not trembling nor afraid,
For Thou, our Great High Priest,
Hast full atonement made;
Thy off’ring was complete,
And we, redeemed from sin,
To Thy most holy place
By faith may enter in.

2 We come, O Lord, to Thee,
And on Thy name we call,
For Thou hast opened wide
The gate of life to all;
No dangers now we fear;
Old things have passed away;
And lo, the path we tread
Leads on to perfect day.

3 From strength to strength we go,
From grace to grace we rise,
Till all our trials here
Seem blessings in disguise;
Thine own adopted ones,
Thou bidd’st us now draw nigh
With tender, filial love,
And, Abba, Father, cry.
