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

47. God the Lord Is King

1 God the Lord is King: before him
earth with all your nations, wait!
Where the cherubim adore him
sits our God in royal state.
He is holy; he is holy;
blessed, only Potentate!

2 God the Lord is King of glory;
Zion, tell the world his fame;
ancient Israel, the story
of his faithfulness proclaim:
He is holy; he is holy;
holy is his awesome name.

3 Laws divine to them were spoken
from the pillar of the cloud;
sacred precepts quickly broken;
fiercely then his vengeance flowed.
He is holy; he is holy;
to the dust their hearts were bowed.

4 But their Father, God, forgave them
when they sought his face once more:
ever ready was to save them,
tenderly did he restore.
He is holy; he is holy;
we too will his grace implore.
