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 come to ask Thy blessing, Lord,
And worship at Thy feet;
O may The Spirit now descend,
While in Thy name we meet;
O grant that thro’ His pow’r divine,
Each heart inspired may be
To follow after righteousness,
Forgetting self in Thee.

2 We come to ask Thy blessing, Lord,
That we may faithful prove,
And from Thy word and Spirit learn
To trust, obey and love;
From pride of heart and vain desire,
O cleanse and make us free,
That we henceforth Thy work may do,
Forgetting self in Thee.

3 We know not how to ask aright,
O help us, Lord, we pray;
Uphold us by Thy heav’nly grace,
And ever guard our way;
Do Thou direct our going forth,
Our Leader ever be;
Then shall we gain the victor’s crown,
Forgetting self in Thee.
