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

A call to praise

Glory, glory God almighty, Thou of heaven

Author: Eliza Carrall Snell
Tune: [Glory! Glory! God Almighty!]
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Glory! Glory! God Almighty!
Thou of heaven and earth the King!
Let the Prince of darkness tremble,
While the hills and mountains ring
With the sound of myriad voices,
In an anthem full and free,
Singing praises, God eternal,
Singing praises unto thee.

2. From the islands of the ocean,
Set like jewels in the deep;
From the lands far to the northward,
Where the snows of ages sleep.
From each land that claims the rising
And the setting of the sun
Voices come to swell the chorus
Which is only now begun.

3. Glory to the King of Glory,
He who rules the sea and land
He who holds the mighty waters
In the hollow of his hand!
Praise him! all ye people, praise him!
Join ye in the glad refrain;
Jesus is o'er all victorious,
And he shall forever reign.
