We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Great is our God, and merciful

Great is our God, and merciful

Representative Text

1 Great is God, and merciful:
His ev'ry work His pow'r displays;
The earth is of His goodness full;
The seasons celebrate His praise.

2 O bow ye lowly at His feet,
And come into His courts with fear:
Our God is good, as He is great,
And with His goodness crowns the year.

3 The seasons in their turn display
His wisdom and His power divine;
The all confess His sov'reign sway,
And in them does His goodness shine.

4 When in the summer's heat we faint,
Our Shepherd and our God is near:
He never lets His creatures want,
But with His goodness crowns the year.

5 He sends the plenteous shower from heaven:
He bids the earth produce us food:
By Him all happiness is given,
And all His works declare Him good.
