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

We thank thee, Lord, with one accord

We thank thee, Lord, with one accord

Author: Peter Hagen
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We thank Thee, Lord, with one accord
For granting us Thy precious Word
That shines so clearly in our night
And doth our weary heart delight.

2 In death's dark valley bound we lay
And for escape could find no way.
O dearest Jesus, thanks to Thee
Who now hast made us prisoners free!

3 We pray Thy light may ever shine
Till breaks that glorious day of Thine.
Grant us to wander evermore
The narrow path to heaven's door.

4 Thou very man and God's own Son,
Thou King of kings on Glory's throne,
No mortal hath deserved such grace,
Nor love Thou shower'st on our race.

5 Thy Holy Spirit be our guide
That in Thy service we abide;
Thou knowest, sinner-Friend so true,
How little our weak strength can do.

6 Accept the off'rings of our praise,
O dearest Lord, we humbly raise,
Wherein we Gentiles would adore
Thy wondrous Name forevermore.
