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 When I with curious eyes survey
My complicated frame,
I read on ev'ry part inscrib'd
My great Creator's name.

2 With nicest art, in secret, God
Did ev'ry member write;
And, when the model was complete,
My eyes beheld the light.

3 He bade the purple flood of life
In circling streams to flow;
And sent the genial heat around
Though ev'ry part to glow.

4. Why was my body form'd erect,
Whilst brutes bow down to earth?
But that my soul should learn to know,
And claim it's nobler birth.

5. Author of life! my tongue shall sing
The wonders of my frame.
Long as I breathe, and think and speak,
I'll praise thy glorious name.
