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

Come and see what God is doing

Representative Text

1 Come and see what God is doing:
His are works of power and grace;
Round the world His Word is going,
Giving light to every place.
’Tis a day expected long,
Theme of old prophetic song.

2 While the nations are contending,
And the tumult louder grows;
Through the earth our God is sending
News of peace, to heal our woes.
Sounds of mercy sweeter are,
Heard amid the din of war.

3 Long the nations were benighted,
And the darkness has been still;
But the lamp that God has lighted,
Now is set upon a hill.
Many now enjoy the light,
And with rapture hail the sight.

4 Higher still and higher place it:
Show it to the world around;
Never should we cease to raise it,
While a nation still is found,
One to whom it is not giv’n
To enjoy the light of Heav’n.
