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

794. Many and Great, O God, Are Your Works

1 Many and great, O God, are your works,
Maker of earth and sky;
Your hands have set the heav'ns with stars;
Your fingers spread the mountains and plains.
Lo, Your word formed the waters deep;
Oceans obey Your voice.

2 Grant unto us communion with You,
O star-abiding One;
Come unto us and dwell with us;
With You are found the gifts of life.
Bless us with life that has no end,
Eternal life with You.
