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,

30. Praise to the Living God

Praise to the living God,
All praised be that Name,
Who was, and is, and is to be,
Is still the same;
The one eternal God,
Before what now appears,
The First, the Last, beyond all thought
Through timeless years.

God's Spirit floweth free,
High surging where it will --
In prophet's word it spoke of old --
Is speaking still.
Established is God's law,
And changeless it shall stand,
Deep writ upon the human heart,
On sea or land.

God has eternal life
Implanted in the soul.
God's love shall be our strength and stay,
While ages roll.
Praise to the living God!
All praised be God's name,
Who was and is, and is to be,
Is still the same.
