Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Jehovah, God, Thy Gracious Power

Full Text

1 Jehovah, God, Thy gracious pow'r
On ev'ry hand we see;
O may the blessings of each hour
Lead all our tho'ts to Thee.

2 Thy pow'r is in the ocean deeps,
And reaches to the skies;
Thine eye of mercy never sleeps;
Thy goodness never dies.

3 From morn till noon, till latest eve,
Thy hand, O God, we see;
And all the blessings we receive,
Proceed alone from Thee.

4 In all the varying scenes of time,
On Thee our hopes depend,
Thro' ev'ry age, in ev'ry clime,
Our Father, and our Friend.
