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.
1 While we meet, who love thy name,
Meet, to cast our cares on thee,
As of old, the Spirit came,
May his presence with us be.
Singing with the Spirit,--
"Jesus, be thy name adored!"
Let us make heart melody,
Singing to the Lord.
2 Touch our lips with holy flame,
As we for thy Spirit long;
Then we'll dare to praise thy name,
Then, thou wilt accept our song! [Chorus]
3 Make us pure and free from sin;
Gird us for the holy race;
Teach us how the lost to win
To the gospel of thy grace. [Chorus]
4 Teacher! make us truly wise;
Victor! make us to be strong;
May our prayers like incense rise,
And to thee our even song. [Chorus]
