Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

147D. O Praise the LORD, for It Is Good

1 O praise the Lord, for it is good
to sing unto our God;
'tis right and pleasant for God's saints
to tell his praise abroad.
The LORD our God builds up the church,
finds those who draw apart;
God binds their wounds and gently leads;
he heals the broken heart.

2 Our Lord is great: he calls by name
and counts the stars of night;
God's wisdom is unsearchable,
and wondrous is his might.
The LORD upholds the poor and meek
but brings the wicked low;
sing praise to God who sends the rain,
whose care the cattle know.

3 No human might, no earthly pride
delights the Lord above;
in those who fear him God delights,
in those who trust his love.
O Zion, praise the LORD your God,
his wondrous love confess;
God is your glory and your strength,
he will your children bless.
