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, 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

The earth is yours, O God

Full Text

1 The earth is yours, O God-
you nourish it with rain;
the streams and rivers overflow,
the land bears seed again.

2 The soil is yours, O God-
the shoots are moist with dew;
and ripened by the burning sun
the corn grows straight and true.

3 The hills are yours, O God-
their grass is lush and green,
providing pastures for the flocks
which everywhere are seen.

4 The whole rich land is yours
for fodder or for plough:
and so, for rain, sun, soil and seed,
O God, we thank you now.
