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

Full Text

1 Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord,
in heights praise to him be.
2 All ye his angels, praise ye him;
his hosts all, praise him ye.

3 O praise ye him, both sun and moon,
praise him, all stars of light.
4 Ye heav’ns of heav’ns him praise, and floods
above the heavens’ height.

5 Let all the creatures praise the name
of our almighty Lord:
For he commanded, and they were
created by his word.

6 He also, for all times to come,
hath them establish’d sure;
He hath appointed them a law,
which ever shall endure.

7 Praise ye Jehovah from the earth,
dragons, and ev’ry deep:
8 Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind,
his word that fully keep.

9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees,
and all ye cedars high:
10 Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things,
and all ye birds that fly.

11 Kings of the earth, all nations,
princes, earth’s judges all:
12 Both young men, yea, and maidens too,
old men, and children small.

13 Let them God’s name praise; for his name
alone is excellent:
His glory reacheth far above
the earth and firmament.

14 His people’s horn, the praise of all
his saints, exalteth he;
Ev’n Isr’el’s seed, a people near
to him. The Lord praise ye.
