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

What favor, Lord, that I should meet

What favor, Lord, that I should meet

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What favor, Lord, that I should meet
With saints around thy mercy-seat,
And love the house of prayer!
What once was weariness and pain,
Is now my choice, delight and gain,
The solace of my care!

2 O let returning Sabbaths be
A sign between my soul and thee
Of mercy, love, and peace!
This one desire I'd seek with zeal
Within thine earthly courts to dwell
Until I see thy face!

A New Selection of Hymns, 1812
