Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

1 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty, how bright,
how beautiful thy mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
How dread are thine eternal years,
O everlasting Lord:
by prostrate spirits day and night
incessantly adored!

2 How wonderful, how beautiful,
the sight of thee must be,
thine endless wisdom, boundless power,
and awesome purity!
O how I fear thee, living God,
with deepest, tenderest fears,
and worship thee with trembling hope
and penitential tears!

3 Yet, I may love thee too, O Lord,
Almighty as thou art,
for thou hast stooped to ask of me
the love of my poor heart.
No earthly father loves like thee;
no mother, e’er so mild,
bears and forbears as thou hast done
with me, thy sinful child.

4 My God, how wonderful thou art,
thy majesty, how bright,
how beautiful thy mercy seat
in depths of burning light!
Father of Jesus, Love divine,
great King upon thy throne,
what joy to see thee as thou art,
and worship thee alone!
