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

39. O God, Most Holy Are Your Ways

1 O God, most holy are your ways,
and who like you deserves my praise?
You only do such wondrous things,
the whole wide world your glory sings;
your outstretched arm your people saved,
though sore distressed and long enslaved.

2 O God, from you the waters fled,
the depths were moved with mighty dread,
the swelling clouds their torrents poured,
and o'er the earth the tempest roared;
'mid lightning's flash and thunder's sound
great trembling shook the solid ground.

3 Your way was in the sea, O God,
through mighty waters, deep and broad.
None understood but God alone,
to man your footsteps were unknown;
but safe your people you did keep,
almighty Shepherd of your sheep.
