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

99. How Lovely on the Mountains (Our God Reigns)

1 How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him
who brings good news, good news;
announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness:
our God reigns, our God reigns.

Refrain:
Our God reigns, our God reigns,
our God reigns, our God reigns.

2 He had no stately form, he had no majesty,
that we should be drawn to him.
He was despised and we took no account of him,
yet now he reigns with the Most High. [Refrain]

3 It was our sin and guilt that bruised and wounded him;
it was our sin that brought him down.
When we like sheep had gone astray, our Shepherd came,
And on his shoulders bore our shame. [Refrain]

4 Out of the tomb He came with grace and majesty;
he is alive, he is alive.
God loves us so; see Jesus' hands, his feet, his side.
Yes, we know, he is alive. [Refrain]
