Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 River and valley,
Mountains so grand,
All were in wisdom
Made by God’s hand;
Mighty sea-caverns
His pow’r hath laid—
All things in Nature
By Him were made!

Refrain:
O let us ever
Glad praises sing,
Of the Creator
Our God and King!
O let us ever
Glad praises sing,
Of the Creator
Our God and King!

2 He sends the shadows
And sunshine bright,
Glory of morning
And peace of night;
Wide plains of Heaven
Shining afar,
Speak of His wisdom
In sun and star! [Refrain]

3 Anthems of ocean,
Smile of each flow’r,
In deep devotion
Speak of God’s pow’r;
Then with each season
Let us rejoice,
Echoing praises
Of Nature’s voice. [Refrain]
