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.

O God, whom neither time nor space

Representative Text

1. O God, whom neither time nor space
can limit, hold, or bind,
look down from heaven, thy dwelling place,
with love for humankind.

2. Another year its course has run;
thy loving care renew:
forgive the ill that we have done,
the good we failed to do.

3. In doubt or danger, all our days,
be near to guard us still;
let all our thoughts and all our ways
be governed by thy will.

4. O help us here on earth to live
from selfish passions free;
to us at last in mercy give
eternal life with thee.
