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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 I'll sing the glory of the Lord,
His goodness I'll proclaim,
And tell how great his mercies are
To those that fear his name;
Up to the everlasting hills
I'll lift my waiting eyes,
And there, with early morning light,
My grateful prayer shall rise,
And there, with early morning light,
My grateful prayer shall rise.

2 I'll sing of Christ, the Holy One,
Who bore the cross for me;
His all-atoning sacrifice
My precious theme shall be.
High on his throne exalted now
He sits at God's right hand;
The only refuge of my soul,
The rock on which I stand,
The only refuge of my soul,
The rock on which I stand.

3 I'll sing the mercy of the Lord,
And praise him while I've breath;
I'll trust in him whose rod and staff
Will comfort me in death.
Dissolve, O earthly house of clay,
And let my spirit soar,
With all the ransomed hosts above,
To praise him evermore,
With all the ransomed hosts above,
To praise him evermore.
