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 Hark, unto the anthems ringing
In the ocean deep!
When the boundless world of waters,
Wakens from its sleep.

O, the sea is full of music,
Skies are all alight,
Telling of the great Creator,
Of His pow’r and might.

2 Hail the time of joy and singing!
Hail the season sweet!
When all living things in gladness,
Sounds of joy repeat. [Refrain]

3 O, may love and adoration,
Evermore arise,
Unto Him who formed all beauty
Of the earth and skies. [Refrain]
