Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. "For God so loved!" Oh, wondrous theme!
Oh! wondrous key to wondrous scheme!
A Saviour sent to sinful men — Glory to God the Father!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

2. In love God gave, in love Christ came,
That man might know the Father's name,
And in the Son salvation claim — Glory to God the Father!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

3. As man he tarried here below
The pow'r and love of God to show;
To help and heal all human woe — Glory to God the Father!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

4. Upon the cross His life He gave,
His people from their sins to save;
For them descended to the grave — Glory to God the Father!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

5. By God exalted from the dead,
He reigns on high the living head
Of ev'ry soul for whom He bled — Glory to God the Father!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!
