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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Great God of All, We Sing Your Praise

Great God of all, we sing your praise

Full Text

Great God of all, we sing your praise
in different words, in different ways,
yet we are one, formed by your hand,
and called to live by your command.

You freely bless us from our birth
with all the treasures of the earth.
Make us wise stewards; help us share
these gifts entrusted to our care.

In times of trouble, times of grief,
in times of doubt and unbelief,
you walk with us, a loyal friend.
Make us as faithful to the end.

When we seek vengeance for a wrong,
you fill our hearts with mercy's song.
We yield to you our selfish pride.
Let justice reign and love abide.

Great God of all, with thankful hearts
for all the blessings you impart,
we sing your praise, our voices one,
from dawn of day to setting sun.
