Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

We Come to You, Our Father

Full Text

1 We come to you, our Father,
with thoughts of thanks and praise,
for your abundant mercy,
and all your love and grace;
we praise you for your goodness
and for your loving care,
for daily showers of blessing,
for answers to our prayers.

2 This church has felt your blessing
for lo, these many years;
your Spirit's gracious leading
through all its joys and tears;
we join with those before us
in holding high the cross.
O use us, Lord and Master,
whate'er may the cost.

3 And now, O God, our Father,
we pledge ourselves anew
by work and prayer and worship
to serve your kingdom too.
With grateful hearts we praise you
and pray, O Lord, that we
who are your church at present,
may serve you faithfully.
