Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

706. Let us, with a gladsome mind

1 Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind:

For his mercies ay endure,
ever faithful, ever sure.

2 Let us blaze his name abroad,
for of gods he is the God: [Refrain]

3 He with all-commanding might
filled the new-made world with light: [Refrain]

4 He the golden-tressèd sun
caused all day his course to run: [Refrain]

5 And the hornèd moon at night
'mid her spangled sisters bright: [Refrain]

6 All things living he doth feed,
his full hand supplies their need: [Refrain]

7 Let us, with a gladsome mind,
praise the Lord, for he is kind: [Refrain]
