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.
Harry Plantinga

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.
