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.

How various and how new

How various and how new

Representative Text

1 How various and how new
Are Thy compassions, Lord!
Each morning shall Thy mercies show,
Each night Thy love record.

2 Thy goodness, like the sun,
Dawned on our early days,
Err infant reason had begun
To form our lips to praise.

3 Each object we beheld
Gave pleasure to our eyes,
And nature all our senses held
In bands of sweet surprise.

4 But pleasures more refined
Awaited that blest day,
When light arose upon our mind
To chase our sins away.

5 How various and how new
Are Thy compassions, Lord!
Eternity Thy truth shall show,
And all Thy love record.
