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.

PXLVII. To the chief Musician. A Psalm for the Sons of Korah

1 Clap hands all people, shout for joy
To God with voice of singing mirth.
2 For dreadful is the Lord an high,
A king most great o'er all the earth.
3 To us the people he subdues,
And nations at our feet do lie.
For us our her'tage he will chuse;
His loved Jacob's glory high.

5 God is ascended with a shout,
Jehovah with the trumpet's noise.
6 Sing praises to our king with voice.
7 For God of ll the earth is king,
Praise him each understanding one.
8 Over the heathen God doth reign:
God sits upon his holy throne.
9 Th' people of Abr'ham's God among
Princes of people gathered be:
For shields of th' earth to God belong,
Exalted mightily is he.
