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.
Harry Plantinga

Mighty God, to thy dear name be given

Mighty God, to thy dear name be given

Author: Peter Dass
Tune: DEUS FORTIS
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Mighty God, to thy dear Name be given
Highest praise o'er all the earth and heaven.
All souls distressed,
All men oppressed,
Their voices raising,
Unite in praising Thy glory.

2 God is God, though all the earth lay wasted;
God is God, though all men death had tasted.
While nations stumble,
In darkness fumble,
By stars surrounded,
Countless aboundeth God's harvest.

3 Highest hills and deepest vales shall vanish,
Earth and heaven both alike be banished.
As in the dawning
Of every morning
The sun appeareth,
So glorious neareth
God's kingdom.
