Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Representative Text

1 We lift our hearts to Thee,
Thou glorious Majesty,
“Ancient of Days!”
For this grand world of ours,
For buds and fragrant flow’rs,
For fruits and gentle show’rs,
Thy name we praise.

2 Thanks for our favored land,
Gift from Thy mighty hand,
Home of the free;
For fruits that here abound,
For peace with plenty crown’d,
And joy and love profound,
We worship Thee.

3 God of eternal love,
Grant, from Thy throne above
Our fervent pray’r:
Guard Thou our future weal,
To us Thyself reveal;
So may we ever feel
Thy tender care.
