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

God of eagles, God of sparrows

Author: Dosia Carlson

Dosia Carlson (b.1930) is an inspiration to differently abled people. A bout with polio shattered her dream of being a missionary in China. After studying at Oberlin College she went on to seminary, was ordained, earned a doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh and served on the faculty of The Defiance College. She is founder of the Beatitudes Center in Phoenix, AZ. Among her many awards are Arizona Woman of the Year and the Antoinette Brown Award for outstanding women clergy. She has published two collections of hymns. Her hymn "Egypt Under Pharaoh" is included in The New Century Hymnal (A.Clyde, Cleveland, OH: Pilgrim Press, 1995).
