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

The heavens declare the glory of God

The heavens declare the glory of God And the firmament showeth his handiwork

Full Text

1 The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament showeth His handy work.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech: and night unto night showeth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language: where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out througt all the earth: and their words to the end of the world.
5 In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun: which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and its circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much find gold: sweeter also than honey, and the honey comb.
11 Moreover, by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping them there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors; cleanse Thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins, let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart: be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning is now, and eve shall be: world without end. Amen.
