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

Creating God

Creating God, your fingers trace
the bold designs of farthest space.
Let sun and moon and stars and light
and what lies hidden praise your might.

Thou Man of grief, remember me


Thou Man of grief, remember me,
Thou never canst thyself forget
Thy last expiring agony,
Thy fainting pangs, and bloody sweat.
