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

89. The Voice of Thanksgiving

1 The voice of thanksgiving we cheerfully raise,
On this, our glad festival day;
The house of our God shall reecho with praise
For blessings He show’rs on our way.

We’ll praise Him, we’ll praise Him,
Our gifts on His altar we’ll lay;
We’ll praise Him, we’ll praise Him,
On this, our glad festival day.

2 He brightens the day with His sunbeams of love,
The nights, with the stars of His grace;
In ev’ry sweet token that comes from above,
His goodness and mercy we trace. [Refrain]

3 We come to His temple with carols of joy;
His care and His guidance extol;
Our strength in His service we’ll early employ,
And sing, “Bless the Lord, O my soul.” [Refrain]
