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 the world to me in its beauty
Is a glorious place most rare;
Where I seek and find the Master’s mind
In nature’s imprint fair;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
‘Tis a work beyond compare!

Earth, sea and sky,
Tell creation’s olden story;
Lived again in souls of men
Who grow in grace.
Sun, moon, and stars,
Speak of God in all His glory,
Showing thus in part to us
His shining face.

2 O the world to me in its beauty
Shows us life in depth and height,
And it tells the soul to seek its goad
In heav’nly realms of light;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
Let us read its message bright. [Refrain]

3 O the world to me in its beauty
Is a vision always new,
And a wealth of love from God above
Reveals its message true;
‘Tis wondrous! ‘Tis wondrous!
How sublime His work to view! [Refrain]
