Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

200. To Bless the Earth

1 To bless the earth, God sends us
From heaven's abundant store
The waters of the springtime,
Enriching it once more.

2 The seed by God provided
Is sown o’er hill and plain,
And then come gentle showers
To bless the springing grain.

3 God crowns the year with goodness,
The earth God's mercy fills,
The wilderness is fruitful,
And joyful are the hills.

4 With grain the fields are covered,
The flocks in pastures graze;
All nature joins in singing
A joyful song of praise.
