We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

363. O bless the Lord, my soul!

1 O bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join,
And aid my tongue to bless His name
Whose favors are divine.

2 'Tis He forgives thy sins;
'Tis He relieves thy pain;
'Tis He that heals thy sicknesses,
And gives thee strength again.

3 He crowns thy life with love,
When rescued from the grave;
He, that redeemed my souls from death,
Hath boundless power to save.

4 He fills the poor with good,
He gives the suff'rers rest;
The Lord hath justice for the proud,
And mercy for th'oppressed.

5 His wondrous works and ways
He made by Moses known;
But sent the world His truth and grace
By His beloved Son.

6 O bless the Lord, my soul!
Nor let this mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die.
