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

65. Before Jehovah's Awesome Throne

1 Before Jehovah's awesome throne,
all nations, bow with sacred joy;
know that the Lord is God alone,
he can create, and he destroy -
he can create, and he destr,oy.

2 His sovereign pow'r without our aid,
made us of dust and formed us men;
and when like wand'ring sheep we strayed,
he brought us to his fold again -
he brought us to his fold again.

3 We are his people, we his care,
our souls and all our mortal frame:
what lasting honors shall we rear,
almighty Maker, to your name? -
almighty Maker, to your name?

4 We'll crowd your gates with thankful songs,
high as the heav'ns our voices raise;
and earth, with her ten thousand tongues,
shall fill your courts with sounding praise -
shall fill your courts with sounding praise.

5 Wide as the world is your command,
vast as eternity your love;
firm as a rock your truth must stand,
when rolling years shall cease to move -
when rolling years shall cease to move.
