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,
Harry Plantinga

Maker of the Sun and Moon

Full Text

1 Maker of the sun and moon,
and mother of the earth,
comes to life in human form,
to bless all human birth:
to bless all human birth:
Glory to God! Maker, Spirit, Son!
Giver and Gift, in love enfolded in One!

2 Give us grace to feel you near
to sense your truth and see;
breathe into our lungs and limbs,
that we might holy be:
that we might holy be: [Refrain]

3 Lord of every living thing,
conceived in woman's womb:
may we find you deep inside
our lives, and make you room:
our lives, and make you room: [Refrain]

4 Mary magnifies her Lord:
then let us praise God's deed
as God's reign begins this way,
and we from sin are freed:
and we from sin are freed: [Refrain]

5 Jesus lay in Mary's arms
God's future at her breast --
proved his love for all the world --
puts our love to the test:
puts our love to the test: [Refrain]
