We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

LXXIII. Praise to the Creator

1 Eternal Majesty on High,
Thou God of Pow'r and Love,
Thy Hands have spread the starry Sky,
And form'd the World above.

2 This Globe below shews forth thy Might,
Thy Goodness and thy Skill;
The Sun, the Moon, the Day, the Night,
Thy Pleasure do fulfil.

3 Beasts, Birds, Fish, Insects all declare
Thou art the mighty God;
Fire, Hail, and Storms, Earth, Water, Air,
Declare thy Name abroad.

4 Trees, Mountains, Rivers, Rocks, and Plains,
Gardens, and fruitful Lands,
Proclaim "The God of Goodness reigns;"
And will while Nature stands.

5 All Things below, and all above,
God, Wise, Good, Great proclaim;
Then let the Children of his Love
Delight to bless his Name.

6 The heav'nly Father, and the Son,
And Spirit we adore;
'Tis now as 'twas when Time begun,
And shall be evermore.
