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, 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

637. God, who made the earth

1 God, who made the earth,
The air, the sky, the sea,
Who gave the light its birth,
Careth for me.

2 God who made the grass,
The flow'r, the fruit, the tree,
The day and night to pass,
Careth for me.

3 God who made the sun,
The moon, the stars, is he
Who, when life's clouds come on,
Careth for me.

4 God who made all things,
On earth, in air, in sea,
Who changing seasons brings,
Careth for me.

5 God who sent his Son
To die on Calvary,
He, if I lean on him,
Will care for me.

6 When in heav'n's bright land
I all his loved ones see,
I'll sing with that blest band,
"God cared for me."
