Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Thou art the true and loving God;
So speaks whate’er I see,—
The morning star, the evening red,
The grass upon the lea.
The birds both late and early sing—
“O child, He loveth thee,”
On lily, and on roseleaf too,
Thy hand of love I see.

2 The sun in all his splendid god,
With blessings rich doth shine
On good and evil, day and night,
Thy image—Love Divine.
And bless, O Lord, Thy children dear,
In all the good things they do,
We love to do Thy will because
We know that God is True.
