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, 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,

87. [Maker, in whom we live]

4 Eternal, Triune God,
let all above,
record and dwell upon thy love.
When heaven and earth are fled
before thy face,
sing all thy love hath made
thine everlasting praise.

4 Crown him the Lord of love;
behold his side,
those wounds in beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer!
Thou hast died for me;
thy praise shall never fail
throughout eternity.

4 My will is not my own
till thou make it thine;
a crown, it must its crown resign.
It only stands unbent
amid the strife,
when on thy bosom leant,
and found in thee its life.
