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.

36. Praise the Great Jehovah’s Name

1 Praise the great Jehovah’s name,
Far and wide His praise proclaim,
Over all the kings of earth His sceptre reigns,
Kingdoms rise, and kingdoms fall,
But His purpose governs all;
Tell His might, in grand triumphant strains.

Then praise His name with cheerful heart and voice
His service make you glad, your willing choice,
In sweet accord His lofty praises sing,
The only wise, the sov’reign King.

2 Limpid stream, and babbling brook,
Arid sand, and shady nook,
Are His work, the work of His creative skill,
Changing seasons, day and night,
Sun and moon, and stars of light
Are submissive to His holy will. [Refrain]

3 Though He be the Lord of all,
Yet He marks the sparrows’ fall,
To His needy children lends a list’ning ear.
And His father-love extends
To the earth’s remotest ends;
Praise His name, in chorus, loud and clear. [Refrain]
