Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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, to Thee, the mighty King

Great God, to Thee, the mighty King

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Great God, to thee, the mighty King,
Whose sovereign rule the world obeys,
With reverent hearts thy people bring
The tribute of their humble praise.

2 The earth's great sceptre fills thy hand;
And, high enthron'd in majesty,
Thou givest thence to every land
The laws of truth and equity.

3 Unerring justice, Lord, is thine;
And every nation shall confess,
That thy decrees are all divine,
And all thy ways are righteousness.

4 In judgment wise, thou wilt bestow
To eery soul its due reward;
Unceasing joy the good shall know,
And live forever with their Lord.

5 But they who tread the sinner's path,
And dare thy righteous laws disown,
Shall meet with due returns from thee,
And reap the fruit which they have sown.
