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

S40. Come, let us sing to the Lord

1. Come let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.

2. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
and raise a loud shout to him with pslams. [Ant.]

3. For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.

4. In his hand are the caverns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his also.

5. The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have molded the dry land. [Ant.]

6. Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.

7. For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice! [Ant.]

8. Harden not your hearts as your forebears
did in the wilderness, at Meribah,
and on that day at Massah,
when they tempted me.

9. They put me to the test,
though they had seen my works. [Ant.]

10. Forty years long I detested that generation
an said, "This people are wayward in their hearts;
they do not know my ways."

11. So I swore in my wrath,
"They shall not enter into my rest." [Ant.]

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
