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

Great God, at whose all-powerful call

Great God, at whose all-powerful call

Representative Text

1 Great God, at whose all-powerful call,
At first arose this beauteous frame!
By Thee the seasons change, and all
The changing seasons speak Thy name.

2 Thy bounty bids the infant year,
From winter storms recovered, rise,
When thousand grateful scenes appear,
Fresh opening to our wondering eyes.

3 Oh how delightful 'tis to see
The earth in vernal beauty drest!
While in each herb, and flower, and tree,
Thy blooming glories shine confest.

4 Aloft, full beaming, reigns the sun,
And light and genial heat conveys;
And, while he leads the seasons on,
From Thee derives his quickening rays.

5 Indulgent God! from every part
Thy plenteous blessings largely flow;
We see; we taste;--let every heart
With grateful love and duty glow.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
