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

66. God of Creation

God of creation, We have seen the horror—
Great devastation, Overwhelming sorrow!
Hear now your people—Homes and loved ones taken—
Feeling forsaken.

Christ of compassion, You who calmed the rough sea—
Hurricane crashing, We prayed for your mercy!
Comfort your people! Hold them close, now giving
Hope for their living.

Give to your children Food to end their hunger,
Clean water’s blessing, News of those they long for!
And by your Spirit, Use our gifts and labors
To help our neighbors.
