Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

1 The Lord is in His holy temple,
Let earth before Him silence keep;
In rev'rence bow, ye lofty mountains,
And be thou still, O restless deep!

Refrain:
The Lord is in His holy temple,
The Lord is in His holy temple,
Keep silence, keep silence,
Keep silence before him.

2 The Lord is in His holy temple,
Be silent all and hear His word;
In godly fear attend and listen,
A message hear from Christ the Lord! [Refrain]

3 The Lord is in His holy temple,
Bow down before His majesty;
Be silent in His awful presence,
Whose glory fills eternity! [Refrain]
