Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

From God above, the God of heaven

From God above, the God of heaven

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 From God above, the God of heav'n,
Is ev'ry gift bestow'd;
And all we need from him is giv'n,
Salvation, Life and food.

2 The God our Father, and our Light,
He changes never more;
Whose ways are holy, just and right,
Whose promises are sure.

3 His spirit and the Gospel word
Creates the mind anew;
The Saviour's image is restor'd!
His mercies brought to view.

4 And thus renew'd and born again:
And made the heirs of grace;
Such will for ever more abstain:
From sin and sinners ways.

5 And swift to hear, and slow to speak:
Not subject unto wrath;
Are they who keep their souls awake,
By constant pray'r and faith.

6 Lord may it be my chief concern,
To live as Christians ought;
And may I ever live and learn
The lessons I am taught.
