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 with hearts of gladness,
Our Father and our King!
With brows undimmed by sadness,
Thy wondrous love to sing;
To crave thy Spirit's blessing
Upon this hallowed hour,
With grateful trust confessing
Thy wisdom and thy power.

2 Oh! fill our hearts, kind Father,
With love from out thine own;
While in thy courts we gather,
As followers of thy Son!
And on our plans and labor,
The lambs of Christ to bless,
O God! look down with favor,
And crown them with success.

3 Oh! wilt thou speed the dawning
Of that eternal day,
When earth and heav'n combining,
Shall own thy righteous sway:
When every tongue shall bless thee,
And every heart shall own
That Kingdom, Power and Glory,
Belong to thee alone!
