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

Hymn 92

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 55 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8:22-32 First Line: Shall Wisdom cry aloud Lyrics: Shall Wisdom cry aloud, And not her speech be heard? The voice of God's eternal Word, Deserves it no regard? "I was his chief delight, His everlasting Son, Before the first of all his works, Creation, was begun. ["Before the flying clouds, Before the solid land, Before the fields, before the floods, I dwelt at his right hand. "When he adorned the skies, And built them, I was there, To order where the sun should rise, And marshal every star. "When he poured out the sea, And spread the flowing deep, I gave the flood a firm decree In its own bounds to keep.] "Upon the empty air The earth was balanced well. With joy I saw the mansion where The sons of men should dwell. "My busy thoughts at first On their salvation ran, Ere sin was born, or Adam's dust Was fashioned to a man. "Then come, receive my grace, Ye children, and be wise; Happy the man that keeps my ways; The man that shuns them dies."

Author: Frances Whitmarsh Wile Meter: D Appears in 79 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8:30-31 Lyrics: 1 All beautiful the march of days, As seasons come and go; The Hand that shaped the rose hath wrought The crystal of the snow; Hath sent the hoary frost of heaven, The flowing waters sealed, And laid a silent loveliness On hill and wood and field. 2 O'er white expanses sparkling pure The radiant morns unfold; The solemn splendors of the night Burn brighter through the cold; Life mounts in every throbbing vein, Love deepens round the hearth, And clearer sounds the angel hymn, "Good will to men on earth." 3 O Thou from whose unfathomed law The year in beauty flows, Thyself the vision passing by In crystal and in rose, Day unto day doth utter speech, And night to night proclaim, In ever-changing words of light, The wonder of Thy name.
