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.
1 Lord when I view thy mighty pow'r,
Thy wisdom and thy wond'rous ways,
I stand amaz'd, yet evermore,
I fain would shew thy love and praise.
2 Mine eyes behold where e'er I look,
More wonders than I can relate;
To read the whole of nature's book,
It shews that thou art wond'rous great.
3 Who sets the sun to run his rout!
Who fix'd and caus'd the change of moon?
Who brings both day and night about?
By the Almighty hand 'tis done.
4 Who send the late and early rain?
Who brings the winds from South & North?
Who warms the frozen earth again?
That all her seeds and plants come forth.
5 It is thy great Almighty word,
Which caused all these things to be:
They shew thou art the sov'reign Lord,
And all the praise is due to thee.
6 Lord, I am thy creation too,
Created for the noblest end,
And with astonishment I view,
That thou to man shouldst condescend.
7 To grant thy blessings from above,
And make us heirs of endless grace:
Astonishing what wond'rous love,
That God to man would show such grace.
8 All glory, honour, praise and pow'r,
Be to our great Almighty King,
Who lives and reigns for evermore,
To him eternal praises sing.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCLXIII
