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.

1799. Give to the Lord, Ye Sons of Fame

1. Give to the Lord, ye sons of fame,
Give to the Lord renown and power,
Ascribe due honors to His name,
And His eternal might adore.

2. The Lord proclaims His power aloud
Over the ocean and the land;
His voice divides the watery cloud,
And lightnings blaze at His command.

3. He speaks, and tempest, hail and wind,
Lay the wide forest bare around:
The fearful hart and frightened hind
Leap at the terror of the sound.

4. To Lebanon He turns His voice,
And lo, the stately cedars break;
The mountains tremble at the noise,
The valleys roar, the deserts quake.

5. The Lord sits sovereign on the flood,
The Thund’rer reigns for ever king;
But makes His Church His blest abode,
Where we His awful glories sing.

6. In gentler language there, the Lord,
The counsels of His grace imparts;
Amidst the raging storm, His Word
Speaks peace and courage to our hearts.
