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 Hymnary.org, 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

Full Text

1 Mighty God, to thy dear Name be given
Highest praise o'er all the earth and heaven.
All sols 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.
