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

Full Text

1. Almighty Father, unoriginate,
Whom no man hath seen ever, nor can see;
Who reignest blest and only potentate,
Light unapproachable encircling Thee:
Almighty Father, hallowed be Thy name;
Who ever art, unchangeably the same.

2. Thou lovest us, else had we never been:
Before we were, in ages long ago,
Thy love had us and all our wants foreseen,
Creating us that we Thy love might know,
Yea, Father, Thou, in whom we live and move,
Hast loved us with an everlasting love.

3. Thou madest man immortal at the first,
An image of Thine own eternity;
And when he fell from life, through sin accursed,
And lost his right to the life giving tree,
Thy love, unconquered would to him restore
His life ennobled and forevermore.

4. Such was Thy love, Thou didst not even spare
Thy Best-beloved, but gav’st Him for us all;
To live that human life beyond compare,
And dying, by His death retrieve our fall.
In Him Thy love unbounded we behold,
For, giving Him, Thou canst not aught withhold.

5. Thou knowest what we are, how frail and blind,
Thou still rememberest that we are but dust:
Like as a father pitieth, Thou art kind,
Thy justice kindness, and Thy kindness just.
Then hear Thy children’s prayer from Heav’n Thy throne;
Father, Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done.
