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.
1 Great God, thy providence and care,
I see and find them ev'ry where;
When e'er my Lord, I look to thee,
Thy hand of providence I see.
2 Why should I doubt or grieve or moan,
Since all I am to thee is known;
And as thy mercies have decreed,
Thy hand shall give me as I need.
3 For all my troubles, woes and grief,
Thy providence point out relief;
Altho' I cannot understand,
The dealing of thy bounteous hand.
4 Thy providence directs and guides,
And for each creatur's wants provides:
For meanest creatures on the earth,
Like as for those of noblest birth.
5 Why should I not on thee depend,
A creature made for that great end,
To be an object of thy love,
To live and dwell with thee above.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCCV
