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 Word of God, how marvelous
Thy wisdom and thy power!
How manifold thy mightiness
To meet our need each hour!

Refrain
O Word of God, how wondrously
Does thy sweet voice resound;
What gracious loving kindnesses
In every tone abound!

2. With sound of thy sweet promises
Our longing hearts beat time;
Thy messages waft melody,
Like bells at evening chime! [Refrain]

3. Thy warnings sound, how solemnly,
Alarms deep toned and dark;
Like fog bells on the rocky coast
That guide the storm tossed bark! [Refrain]

4. Thy piloting how sure, how safe,
Until, all breakers passed,
We triumph o’er each hurricane,
And anchor, home at last! [Refrain]
