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

Parent of all, omnipotent

Parent of all, omnipotent

Author: Walker
Published in 12 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Parent of all, omnipotent!
In heaven and earth below!
Through all creation's vast extent,
Whose streams of goodness flow:

2 Teach me to know from whence I rose,
And unto what designed;
No private aims may I propose,
That injure human kind.

3 To hear my country's lawful voice,
May my best thoughts incline;
'Tis reason's law, 'tis virtue's choice,
'Tis nature's call, and thine.

4 Me from fair freedom's sacred cause
May nothing e'er divide;
Nor grandeur, gold, nor vain applause,
Nor friendship false, misguide.
