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

Thou great and sacred Lord of all

Thou great and sacred Lord of all

Full Text

1 Thou great and sacred Lord of all,
Of life and only spring,
Creator of unnumber'd worlds,
Immensely glorious King.
Whose image shakes the stagg'ring mind,
Beyond conception high,
Crown'd with omnipotence and veil'd
With dark eternity.

2 Drive from the confines of my heart,
Impenitence and pride:
Nor let me in erroneous paths
With thoughtless ideots glide.
Whate'er thine all-discerning eye
Sees for thy creature fit,
I'll bless the good and to the ill
Contentedly submit.

3 With humane pleasure let me view
The prosp'rous and the great;
Malignant envy let me fly,
With odious self-conceit.
Let not despair nor curs'd revenge
Be to my bosom known;
O give me tears for others woe
And patience for my own.

4 Feed me with necessary food,
I ask not wealth or fame:
But give me eyes to view thy works,
And sense to praise thy name.
May still my days obscurely pass,
Without remorse or care;
And let me for the parting hour,
My trembling ghost prepare.
