Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Notes

Scripture References:
st. 1 = Mic. 4:1-2
st. 2 = Mic. 4:3
st. 3 = Mic. 4:34
ref. = Mic. 4:2

This song is based on Micah 4: 14, in which the prophet announces the rule of the LORD God in the last days, when the nations will flock to worship the LORD and peace shall reign. This prophecy will reach its fullest expression in the new heaven and earth, but Christians already see evidence of God's kingdom today wherever the Word of the LORD is proclaimed.

Calvin Seerveld (PHH 22) versified Micah's prophecy for the Psalter Hymnal in 1985 "to put this deeply comforting promise (found also in Isaiah 2:2-4) to song for God's people to sing."

Liturgical Use:
Advent; worship services focusing on justice and peace, God's kingdom, or the end of war; prayer for peace efforts by governments, leaders, or organizations.
