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.

Eternal God, thy power make known

Eternal God, thy power make known

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
