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

Full Text

1 The world is the Lord’s and the heavens on high,
The stars in their splendor that shine;
His riches untold fill the earth and the sky,
Yet the wealth of a King may be mine.

Refrain:
Mine, mine, mine,
Mine, mine, mine,
I’ll rest on the word of my Father divine,
And the wealth of a King may be mine.

2 His love is unfailing, unchanging secure,
His joy is eternal, divine;
O measureless riches that ever endure,
Yet the wealth of a King may be mine. [Refrain]

3 His grace is unbounded, unfathomed and free,
He tells me “Lo! all things are thine;”
He rules all the world yet my Father is He,
And the wealth of a King may be mine. [Refrain]
