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.

Representative Text

1 Hail to the great Creator,
Wonderful are His ways,
Hail Him, the King Eternal,
Lift now a song of praise;
Ev’ry orb and glist’ning sphere,
All the distant and the near,

Show forth His marvelous handiwork,
Show forth His marvelous handiwork,
Show forth His marvelous handiwork,
And day unto day His praise uttereth forth.

2 Praise we the great Jehovah,
Throned in the realms above;
He is the mighty Saviour,
he is the King of Love;
Pow’r and wisdom He displayed,
All the things that He hath made, [Refrain]

3 Glory and praise be given
Now to the Saviour King,
Up from the whole creation,
Loud let His praises ring;
For His works in ev’ry place
And the wonders of His grace, [Refrain]
