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

We long for mighty signs of God

Representative Text

1 We long for mighty signs of God—
Cathedral, miracle, and sword,
His power and glory written plain—
So none may doubt that He is Lord.

2 But poor, in weakness, comes the Christ;
His glory gone, no king we see;
A servant Lord, no praise He seeks.
Thus comes God’s power to such as we.

3 God’s work we cannot boldly trace,
Yet even in us His Spirit flows.
Our stumbling does not halt His course;
Where we least think, He surely goes.

4 Not in our own strength, Lord, we move;
Thy Kingdom falls not when we fall
But forward presses day by day
Until Thy truth is known by all.
