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 Where Thou dost bid me come,
Trusting in Thee,
Now like a weary dove,
Saviour, I flee;
Weak as a bruised reed,
Thy quick’ning grace I need;
O Spirit, intercede;
Lord, answer prayer.

2 All my unfaithfulness
Thine eye can see;
Yet, in Thy tender love,
Bless even me;
Here at Thy mercy seat,
My only sure retreat,
Here at thy sacred feet;
Lord, answer prayer.

3 Break thro' the clouds that hang
Dark o’er my skies;
Touch Thou my languid soul,
Help me to rise;
Now let Thy smile divine
Bright on my pathway shine;
Jesus, the pow’r is Thine;
Lord, answer prayer.
