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 Lord of the worlds below!
On earth thy glories shine;
The changing seasons show
Thy skill and power divine.
The rolling years Are full of thee:
In all we see A God appears.

2 In winter, awful thou!
With storms around thee cast;
The leafless forests bow
Beneath thy northern blast.
While tempest lower, To thee, dread King,
We homage bring, And own thy power.

Freeman, James, D.D. Born at Charlestown, Mass., April 22, 1759, and graduated at Harvard, 1777. He was "the first avowed preacher of Unitarianism in the United States.” In 1782 he was "Reader" in King's Chapel, and assisted or guided that historic parish in its change from Episcopacy to the then new ways in teaching and discipline. In 1787 he was "ordained," and retained the pastorate of the King's Chapel till 1826. He altered its Liturgy, and prepared for its use the King's Chapel Collection of Psalms & Hymns, 1799. Died Nov. 14, 1835. His hymn, "Lord of the worlds below," is based on Thomson's "Hymn on the Seasons." It appeared in the Psalms & Hymns, 1799, and is found in various collections.
