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

Representative Text

1 Praise God for wheat all white and sweet
Of which to make our bread;
Praise God for yellow corn with which
His waiting world is fed.
Praise God for fish and flesh and fowl
He gave to men for food,
Praise God for every creature which
He made and called it good.

2 Praise God for winter's stores of ice,
Praise God for summer's heat;
Praise God for fruit trees, bearing seed,
"To you it is for meat."
Praise God for all the bounty
By which the world is fed.
Praise God, ye children all, to whom
He gives your daily bread.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
