Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

God the giver

Full Text

1 O world of light and glory!
O sky of cloud and blue!
Thy daily song and story
Is ever fresh and new.
Then let us join the chorus,
With voices glad and clear,
His love is watching o'er us,
Who sees afar and near.

2 The trees and grass and flowers,
The birds that sing his praise,
The gentle summer showers,
The shining autumn days,
From God's own hand are given
In loving bounty free;
He made the earth and heaven,
He dwells with you and me.

3 He gave the precious treasure
Of home and lov'd ones dear,
The blessing and the pleasure
That crown each happy year.
And, oh, beyond our telling,
His only Son he gave,
All other gifts excelling,
A sinful world to save.
