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

257. Have Mercy On Us, God Most High

1 Have mercy on us, God most high,
who lift our hearts to thee;
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.

2 When heaven and earth were yet unmade,
when time was yet unknown,
thou in thy bliss and majesty
didst live and love alone.

3 How wonderful creation is,
the work which thou didst bless;
and O what then must thou be like,
eternal Loveliness!

4 Most ancient of all mysteries!
Low at thy throne we lie:
have mercy now, most merciful,
most holy Trinity.
