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.

Thou, O Lord, Art God Alone

Full Text

1 Thou, O Lord, art God alone;
Everlasting is Thy throne;
Through the ages men shall sing
Praise to heaven's eternal King.
Thou, enthroned above the skies,
Wilt for Zion's help arise;
Let Thy grace to her appear,
For the promised time is near.

2 If with love compassionate
We, Thy servants, mourn her state,
Wilt not Thou, O gracious Lord,
Help in Zion's need afford?
Lord, Thy glory shall appear,
Kings and nations then shall fear;
And Thy Name shall be adored
When Thy Zion is restored.

3 This all ages shall record
For the glory of the Lord;
thou dost hear the humble prayer,
For the helpless Thou dost care.
Thou eternal art, and great,
Heaven and earth Thou didst create,
Heaven and earth shall pass away,
Changeless Thou shalt life for aye.

4 As one lays a garment by,
Thou wilt change the starry sky
Like a vesture worn and old,
But Thy years shall ne'er be told.
Thou wilt make Thy servants' race
Ever live before Thy face,
And forever at Thy side
Children's children shall abide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
