Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Almighty God, thy pow'rful word
From nothing all things brought;
Earth seas, and skies, by thee their Lord,
With skill divine were wrought.
2 Thy pleasure heav'nly hosts fulfil;
For thee each planet rolls:
Earth, sun, and stars perform thy will;
Thy nod the world controls.
3 Thou over all art Lord supreme;
All else from the derive.
No being can dispute thy claim,
Or independent live.
4 To thee, our Lord, we therefore bow;
To thee, our all resign.
Entire to thee ourselves we vow,
For we are wholly thine. Source: A Collection of Hymns and A Liturgy: for the use of Evangelical Lutheran Churches; to which are added prayers for families and individuals #35
