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

35. Great God of Wonders!

1 Great God of wonders! all thy ways
are matchless, godlike and divine;
but the fair glories of thy grace
More godlike and unrivaled shine.
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?

2 Such dire offenses to forgive,
such guilty, daring souls to spare:
this is thy grand prerogative,
and none shall in the honor share!
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?

3 O may this strange, this matchless grace,
this god-like miracle of love
fill the whole earth with grateful praise,
And all th'angelic choirs above,
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?
