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.

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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Consecration and Dedication

Representative Text

1 What shall I render to the LORD,
what shall my offering be,
for all the gracious benefits
He has bestowed on me?

2 Salvation's cup my soul will take
while to the LORD I pray,
and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

3 Not lightly does the LORD permit
His chosen saints to die;
from death Thou hast delivered me,
Thy servant, LORD, am I.

4 The sacrifice of praise I bring

and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

5 Within His house, the house of pray'r,
my soul shall bless the LORD,
and praises to His holy Name
let all His saints accord.
