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

Representative 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.
