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.

Break forth in a song

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness (Crosby)

Author: Fanny J. Crosby
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The earth is the Lord's and the fulness,
The sky is the work of his hand;
The stars that revolve in their splendor,
Shine out at his will and command.
He speaks, and the tempest is silent,
The ocean his mandate obey.
While nature, her minstrels awaking.
Breaks forth in a song to his praise.

Praise him, praise him, holy is he,
Blessed Creator of earth and sea;
Great and victorious, mighty and glorious,
Jesus shall reign forever.

2 He sendeth the springs in the valleys
From hills that are blooming with flowers,
He covers the mountains with verdure,
And giveth the dew and the showers.
The light of the beautiful sunshine,
His goodness and wisdom displays
Oh, well may his people, rejoicing,
Break forth in a song to his praise. [Refrain]

3 He came from the throne of his glory,
The lost ones to seek and to save;
Oh, wonderful, wonderful story!
His life as our ransom he gave.
For love that surpasseth our knowledge
Our voices transported we raise
Let all in his boundless creation
Break forth in a song to his praise. [Refrain]
