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.

Representative Text

1. O Lord, our God, almighty King,
We fain would make this temple ring
With our adoring praise;
And joining with the ransomed host,
To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Our grateful songs we raise,
Our grateful songs we raise.

2. The heav’n of heav’ns cannot contain
Thy majesty, and in Thy train
Thy archangel veils his face;
Yet curtained tent or temple fair,
If humble contrite hearts be there,
May be Thy resting place,
May be Thy resting place.

3. We sing Thy wondrous works and ways;
We sing the glorious displays
Of love and power divine;
In all our past, Thy matchless grace,
Hath been vouchsafed within this place
The glory e’er be Thine,
The glory e’er be Thine.

4. These courts renewed and made more meet
For Thine abode, low at Thy feet
With prayer, to Thee we bring;
Hear and forgive; Thy love distill;
This temple with Thy glory fill;
Our Father and our King,
Our Father and our King!
