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

441. Blessing and honor and glory and power

1 Blessing and honour and glory and power,
wisdom and and riches and strength evermore
give to the Lord who our battle hath won,
whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne.

2 Into the heaven of the heavens hath he gone;
sitteth he now in the joy of the throne;
weareth he now of the Kingdom the crown;
singeth he now the new song with his own.

3 Soundeth the heaven of the heavens with his name;
ringeth the earth with his glory and fame;
ocean and mountains, stream, forest, and flower
echo his praises and tell of his power.

4 Ever ascendeth the song and the joy;
ever descendeth the love from on high;
blessing and honour and glory and praise, --
this is the theme of the hymns that we raise.

5 Give we the glory and praise to the Lamb;
take we the robe and the harp and the palm;
sing we the song of the Lamb that was slain,
dying in weakness, but rising to reign.
