Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 With joy we lift our eyes

Where dwells eternal love.

2 Thee we adore, O Lord!
And filial duty pay.
Thy service, unconstrain'd and free,
Conducts to endless day.

3 While in thy house we kneel
With trust and holy fear;
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,
And lend a gracious ear.

4 O teach our hearts to pray,
And tune our lips to sing!
Nor from thy presence cast away
The sacrifice we bring.
