Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

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]
