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.

1 Unto God our Savior
sing a joyful song;
wondrous are his doings,
for his arm is strong.
He has wrought salvation,
he has made it known,
and before the nations
is his justice shown.

2 Joyful, all you people,
sing before the Lord;
shout and sing his praises
now in glad accord;
with the harp and trumpet
joyful praises bring;
come, rejoice before him,
God, the Lord, your King.

3 Waves of mighty ocean,
earth with fullness stored,
floods and fields and mountains,
sing before the Lord;
for he comes with justice,
evil to redress,
and to judge the nations
in his righteousness.

Psalter Hymnal, 1987
