Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

4. God Himself is Present

1 God Himself is present:
Let us now adore Him
And with awe appear before Him.
God is in His temple—
All within keep silence,
Prostrate lie with deepest rev'rence.
Him alone
God we own,
Him, our God and Savior;
Praise His name forever.

2 God himself is present:
Hear the harps resounding;
See the hosts the throne surrounding!
"Holy, holy, holy"—
Hear the hymn ascending,
Songs of saints and angels blending.
Bow thine ear
To us here:
Hear, O Christ, the praises
That Thy Church now raises.

3 O Thou Fount of blessing,
Purify my spirit,
Trusting only in Thy merit.
Like the holy angels,
Who behold Thy glory,
May I ceaselessly adore Thee.
Let Thy will
Ever still
Rule Thy Church terrestrial
As the hosts celestial.

Amen.
