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 Eternal God, thy power make known,
Make the whole earth confess
That thou art God, and thou alone
Dost rule in righteousness.
2 May the whole earth thy glory see,
And thy salvation know;
And to thy saints, who wait for thee,
Thy works and wonders show.
3 Lord Jesus, come, and take thy power,
And rule us by thy grace:
We wait for that expected hour
When we shall see thy face.
4 Our souls are longing for the day
When Jesus shall be King;
When he our stubborn sins shall slay,
And we his praise shall sing.
5 Our hearts rejoice in Jesu's name,
His word forbids our fear;
We love his gospel to proclaim
That all mankind may hear.
6 But dearest Lord, let us enjoy
That everlasting peace,
That nothing ever shall destroy,
Nor cause it to decrease,
7 Lord here we wait to know thy will,
And to obey the same,
May we our course on earth fulfill,
In honor to thy name.
