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

5301. O Serve the Lord

1. O serve the Lord with gladness,
And come before His throne;
He is the great Creator,
And He is God alone;
The heavens declare His glory,
The earth His power displays;
While millions without number
To Him glad anthems raise.

Refrain
O serve the Lord with gladness,
And come before His throne;
He is our great Redeemer,
And He is God alone.

2. O serve the Lord with gladness,
And glad hosannas bring,
To Him the sovereign ruler,
The universal King;
Forever through the ages
His truth unchanging stands;
Let all the nations fear Him,
And reverence His commands. [Refrain]

3. O serve the Lord with gladness,
His love to all proclaim;
Exalt Him in the highest;
And spread abroad His fame;
All majesty, dominion,
All power and glory be
To Him who reigns in triumph,
Through all eternity. [Refrain]
