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 humbly thank thee gracious Lord,
Thy blessed name we praise;
We praise thee for thy holy word
And every means of grace.

2 O, may the word which we have heard!
Fill us with holy zeal,
And may our slothful minds be stir'd
To seek and do thy will.

3 With faith and love fill every mind,
With reverence and fear,
Cause us to seek until we find
Thy spirit with us here.

4 Extend to us, thy gracious hands,
Bless us with heavenly grace--
So shall we live to thy commands,
And walk in all thy ways.

5 Grant us thy blessing from above;
Dear Lord, before we part,
So shall we know that thou art love,
And feel thy grace at heart.
