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

With all thy power, O Lord, defend

With all thy power, O Lord, defend

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 With all thy pow'r, O Lord defend
Him whom we now to thee commend;
A faithful minister secure,
And make him to the end endur.

2 Gird him with all sufficient grace;
Give to his footsteps paths of peace;
Thy truth and faithfulness fulfil;
Preserve him, Lord, form ev'ry ill.

3 Before his face protection send;
O love him, save him to the end:
Nor let him as thy pilgrim rove,
Without the convoy of thy love.

4 Enlarge, enflame, and fill his heart,
In him thy mighty pwer exert;
That thousands yet unvorn may praise
The wonders of Redeeming grace.
