Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Almighty God, thy powerful word

Almighty God, thy powerful word

Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
