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.

84D. Almighty Lord, How Lovely Is That Place

Text Information
First Line: Almighty Lord, how lovely is that place
Title: Almighty Lord, How Lovely Is That Place
Author: Stephen P. Starke
Meter: 10.10.10 with alleluias
Publication Date: 2012
Topic: Biblical Names and Places: Jacob; Blessing; Church Year: Lent (49 more...)
Copyright: © 1991 Stephen P. Starke
Tune Information
Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1872-1958
Meter: 10.10.10 with alleluias
Key: G Major
Notes: Ps. 84 is usually associated with introspective and quiet strength. The association of the tune SINE NOMINE with the text “For All the Saints” suggests a different interpretation. In lofty tones we imagine the heavenly dwelling of God, our final home. This setting would be particularly appropriate at funerals or other celebrations of our hope of eternal life with God.
