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

34. Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame

1 Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame,
Give to the Lord renown and pow'r;
Ascribe due honours to His name,
And his eternal might adore.

2 The Lord proclaims His pow'r aloud
O'er the ocean and the land;
His voice divides the wat'ry cloud,
And lightnings blaze at his command.

3 He speaks, and howling tempests rise,
And lay the forest bare around;
the fiercest beasts, with piteous cries,
Confess the terror of the sound.

4 His thunders rend the vaulted skies,
And palaces and temples shake.
The mountains tremble at the noise,
The valleys roar, the deserts quake.

5. The Lord sits sov'reign o'er the flood;
The Thund’rer reigns for ever King;
But makes his church His blest abode,
Where we His awful glories sing.

6 We see no terrors in his name,
But in our God a Father find.
The voice that shakes all nature's frame,
Speaks comfort to the pious mind.
