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.

1. Within the Church’s sacred fold,
By holy sacrament enrolled,
Another lamb we lay:
An heir before of sin and shame,
Now in the holy triune name
His guilt is washed away.

2. O loving Father, Thee we pray
Look on this babe newborn today,
Thine own adopted child;
An angel guard do Thou bestow
To lead him in Thy paths below,
And guide him through the wild.

3. O God the Son, Thou heavenly vine,
Protect this tender branch of Thine
Through all that may betide;
Forever nourished may he be
With sap divine that flows from Thee,
In Thee for aye abide.

4. Blest Spirit, whose indwelling grace
Has given this little one a place
Among the heirs of life;
O breathe Thy sevenfold gifts within,
And keep Thy temple pure from sin
In midst of worldly strife.

5. So, holy Trinity, by Thee
Divinely trained this babe may be
In faith and hope and love;
So may he gain, earth’s waves o’erpast,
His bright inheritance at last
With all Thy saints above.
