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

269. Universal Praise

1 All people that dwell on earth,
Your songs to Jehovah now raise;
Come, serve Him with gladness and joy,
Approach Him with anthems of praise.

2 Know ye that Jehovah is God,
Our Sov'reign and Maker is He;
His people forever His own,
The sheep of His pasture are we.

3 With thankfulness enter His gates,
His praise in His temple proclaim;
Your voices in thanksgiving raise,
And bless ye His glorious Name.

4 For gracious and good is the Lord,
His mercy to us never ends;
His faithfulness, true to His word,
Thro' ages unending extends.
