Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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

Full Text

1 O give ye thanks unto the Lord,
for good indeed is he;
the love that he toward us bears
endures eternally.

2 "His love eternally endures":
let all the cry repeat,
all ye who in the Lord's true fear
do in his presence meet.

3 It is the Lord who is my strength;
song of my soul is he,
and sure salvation evermore
he hath become to me.

4 I'll live to tell his deeds,
who hath preserved in me life's breath;
the Lord did sorely chasten me,
but gave me not to death.

5 The stone the builders cast aside
is now head cornerstone;
we look and wonder at the work
that is the Lord's alone.

6 This is the day the Lord hath made;
he calls the hours his own;
let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne!
