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

Representative Text

1 God of eternity, Saviour and King,
Help us to honor Thee,
Help while we sing;
Now may the clouds of night
Break into splendor bright,
Jesus, our life and light,
Our Lord and King!

2 God of eternity, Ancient of Days,
Glorious in majesty,
Author of Praise;
Hear Thou our earnest call,
While at Thy feet we fall,
Jesus, our all in all,
Our Lord and King!

3 God of eternity, Ruler divine,
Strength of the mighty hills,
All power is Thine;
Boundless Thy reign shall be,
Wondrous Thy victory,
Earth shall be fill'd with Thee,
Our Lord and King!

4 God of eternity, Love is Thy name,
God of the earth and sea,
Thee we proclaim;
Love, thro' Thine only Son,
Thy work of grace hath done;
O blessed Three in One,
Our Lord and King!
