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.

His large and great dominion shall

His large and great dominion shall

Representative Text

1 His large and great dominion shall
from sea to sea extend:
it from the river shall reach forth
unto earth's utmost end.

2 The kings of Tarshish, and the isles,
to him shall presents bring;
and unto him shall offer gifts
Sheba's and Seba's king.

3 Yea, all the mighty kings on earth
before him down shall fall;
and all the nations of the world
do service to him shall.

4 His Name for ever shall endure;
last like the sun it shall:
all shall be blest in him, and blest
all nations shall him call.

5 Now blessèd be the Lord our God,
the God of Israel,
for he alone doth wondrous works,
in glory that excel.

6 And blessèd be his glorious name
to all eternity:
the whole earth let his glory fill.
Amen, so let it be.
