Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Like the years of His right hand,
Like His own eternity.

Praise Him, ye who know his love,
Praise Him from the depths beneath,
Praise Him in the heights above;
Praise your Maker all that breathe.

Notes

All ye Gentiles, praise the Lord. J. Montgomery. [Ps. cxvii.] First published in his Songs of Zion, 1822, in 3 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in his Original Hymns, 1853, p. 91, where it is entitled, "Exhortation to Universal Praise and Thanksgiving." It is sometimes given as:—"All ye nations, praise the Lord,” in both English and American hymnals. It was introduced into congregational use at an early date, and has attained to a fair position.

-- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
