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.

361. Praise thou the Lord, the omnipotent Monarch of Glory

1 Praise thou the Lord, the omnipotent Monarch of Glory;
Join in, my soul, with the heavenly choir in their story;
Come and partake;
Psalt'ry and harp also wake:
Sing the Creator's great glory!

2 Praise thou the Lord, who e'er ruleth and guideth all surely;
Over life's pathway, so fearful, He leads thee securely;
Ever He sends
Mercies and blessings and friends;
Then from thy heart thank Him truly.

3 Praise thou the Lord, who hath fearfully, wondrously made thee,
Health has vouchsafed, and when heedlessly falling hath stayed thee;
Fainting and weak,
When not a word thou couldst speak,
Wings of His mercy did shade thee.

4 Praise thou the Lord, who thy life hath so visibly guided,
Streams of free grace, in His Son, for thy sin hath provided;
Plain to thy view,
God, the Almighty and True,
Ne'er from His child is divided.

5 Praise thou the Lord, and forget all His benefits never;
Swell the loud chorus, ye chosen, till broad as a river
Upward it stream;
Soul, O forget not this theme:
Praise Him, O praise Him forever.
