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

7235. We Rise to Praise Thee

1. We rise to praise Thee now, dear Lord,
For all the blessings of Thy Word,
And for the light which Thou hast giv’n,
To show the path that leads to Heav’n;
But others in the dark today
Are failing still to find the way;
O grant Thy kingdom soon may come;
Bring all Thy children safely home.

2. Yet as we pray, condemned we stand;
To us Thou gavest the command,
Go ye into the world and preach,
The Gospel to all nations teach;
With deep contrition, Lord, we own,
As now we stand before Thy throne,
How little we have done to bring
The world to Thee, its rightful king.

3. Forgive us, Lord, and make us know
Just the right thing for each to do;
Come now and with Thy Spirit fill,
That we may do Thy perfect will:
Then we may pray, and Thou wilt hear,
And give the answers to the prayer,
That Thou wilt make Thy kingdom come,
And bring Thy ransomed children home.
