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.

PLXVII. To the chief Musician, Neginoth. A Psalm of Song

1 God gracious be to us, and give
His blessing us unto;
Let him upon us make to shine
His countenance also. Selah.
2 That there may be the knowledge of
Thy way the earth upon:
And also of thy saving health
In every nation.

3 O God let thee the people praise,
Let people all praise thee,
4 O let the nations rejoyce,
And glad O let them be.
For judgment thou with righteousness
Shall give thy folk unto;
The nations that are on the earth,
Thou shalt them lead also.

5 O God, let thee the people praise
Let people all praise thee
6 Her fruit abundant by the earth
Shall then forth yielded be.
7 God ev'n our own God shall us bless,
God bless us surely shall:
And of the eartjh the utmost coasts
They shall him rev'rence all.
