We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Mighty God, to thy dear name be given

Mighty God, to thy dear name be given

Tune: DEUS FORTIS

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.
