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 With cheerful songs and hymns of praise,
Our grateful hearts to Him we raise,
Who Leads us on with gentle hand,
And crowns with love Our Christian Band.

Then gladly let us stand,
United heart and hand,
The lost to gather in
From sorrow, pain, and sin;
Be this our constant aim—
To spread abroad the name
Of Jesus our Redeemer,
And His wondrous love proclaim.

2 And while we meet together here,
In bounds of love and friendship dear,
Oh, may our prayers like incense rise,
To Him whose grace each need supplies. [Refrain]

3 O Thou who art the children’s Friend,
Our steps direct, our paths defend,
And by Thine own almighty hand
Protect and keep our Christian Band. [Refrain]
