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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

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.
