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.
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

Representative 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.
