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

Full Text

1 Great, and high, and holy, Lord,
Heav’n and earth are full of Thee;
Spread abroad Thy precious word,
Let the world Thy glory see.

Refrain:
Raise, raise the ensign far, far and wide,
Out over mountain, hill and plain!
Tell, tell of Christ, the Crucified,
Bring all the world to own His reign!

2 Why in darkness, still and deep,
Should the heathen nations lie,
Afric’s stricken daughters weep,
India’s sons no light descry? [Refrain]

3 May Thy Spirit pierce the gloom,
Scatter night and mist afar;
Save the heathen from their doom,
By the rising Morning Star. [Refrain]
