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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 The God of Abraham praise, who reigns enthroned above,
Ancient of everlasting days, and God of Love.
Jehovah, great I AM, by earth and heaven confessed:
we bow and bless the sacred name forever blest.

2 He by himself has sworn, we on his oath depend,
we shall, on eagles' wings upborne, to heaven ascend;
we shall behold his face, we shall his power adore,
and sing the wonders of his grace forevermore.

3 The God who reigns on high the great archangels sing,
and “Holy, holy, holy!” cry, “Almighty King!
Who was and is the same, and evermore shall be:
eternal Father, great I AM, we worship thee.”

4 The whole triumphant host give thanks to God on high;
“Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!” they ever cry.
Hail, Abraham’s God, and mine! With heaven our songs we raise;
all might and majesty are thine, and endless praise.
