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

On thee, who dwellest above the skies

On thee, who dwellest above the skies

Tune: [To celebrate thy name, O Lord]
Published in 5 hymnals

Full Text

1 On thee, who dwell'st above the Skies,
For Mercy wait my longing Eyes;
As Servants watch their Master's Hands,
And Maids their Mistresses' Commands.

2 O then have Mercy on us, LORD,
Thy gracious Aid to us afford:
To us, whom cruel Foes oppress,
Grown rich and proud by our Distress.
