Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

Text:Psalm VIII


1 O God our Lord, how wonderful
are thy works ev'ry where!
Thy fame surmounts in dignity
the highest heav'ns that are.

2 E'en by the mouth of sucking babes
thou wilt confound thy foes;
For in those babes thy might is seen
thy graces they disclose.

3 And when I see the heav'ns above,
the work of thine own hand,
The sun, the moon, and all the stars
in order as they stand;

4 Lord what is man, that thou of him
tak'st such abundant care!
Or what the son of man, whom thou
to visit dost not spare!

5 For thou hast made him little less
than angels in degree;
And thou hast also crowned him
with glorious dignity.

6 Thou hast preferred him to be lord
of all thy works, and thou
Hast in subjection unto him
put all things here below.

7 As sheep, and neat, and all beasts else
that in the fields do feed,
Fowls of the air, fish of the sea,
and all that therein breed,

8 O God our Lord, how excellent
is thy most glorious Name
In all the earth! Therefore do we
praise and adore the same.
