Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

52. Blessed Be the Name

1 O for a thousand tongues to sing -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
The glories of my God and King -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

Refrain:
Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name;
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name;
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

2 Jesus, the Name that charms our fears -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
'Tis music in the sinner's ears -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

3 He breaks the power of cancelled sin -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
His blood can make the foulest clean -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

4 I never shall forget that day -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
When Jesus washed my sins away -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. [Refrain]
