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. O earth, thou shalt not languish
For aye, because of sin;
Thou shalt forget thine anguish
When Christ hath entered in.
Thy paradisal beauty
Shall be once more restored,
When all thy wide dominions
Are holy to the Lord.

2. Confusion and commotion
Heave now thy troubled breast,
Where thine eternal ocean
Moans in its long unrest.
But even as thou mournest
In thy captivity,
God’s hidden ones are seeking
To bring God’s peace to thee.

3. O earth, thy wound was mortal,
Dealt by the hand of sin;
But through thy open portal
Thy healer cometh in.
The knowledge of His glory,
In fullness as the sea,
Shall soon, with waves baptismal,
Surround and cover thee.
