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,

34. Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame

1 Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame,
Give to the Lord renown and pow'r;
Ascribe due honours to His name,
And his eternal might adore.

2 The Lord proclaims His pow'r aloud
O'er the ocean and the land;
His voice divides the wat'ry cloud,
And lightnings blaze at his command.

3 He speaks, and howling tempests rise,
And lay the forest bare around;
the fiercest beasts, with piteous cries,
Confess the terror of the sound.

4 His thunders rend the vaulted skies,
And palaces and temples shake.
The mountains tremble at the noise,
The valleys roar, the deserts quake.

5. The Lord sits sov'reign o'er the flood;
The Thund’rer reigns for ever King;
But makes his church His blest abode,
Where we His awful glories sing.

6 We see no terrors in his name,
But in our God a Father find.
The voice that shakes all nature's frame,
Speaks comfort to the pious mind.
