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

90. Testimony and Praise

1 The Lord I will at all times bless,
My mouth His praises shall express;
In Him shall all my boasting be,
While all the meek rejoice with me.

2 O magnify the Lord with me,
Let us to praise Him Name agree;
I sought the Lord, He answered me,
And from my fears He set me free.

3 Who look to Him shall walk in light,
With joy their faces shall be bright,
Distressed, they cried; the Lord arose
And saved them out of all their woes.

4 Around His saints as watch and ward
Encamps the angel of the Lord;
That God is good,
O taste and see,
Who trusts in Him shall blessed be.

5 Fear Him, ye saints, and do His will,
And all your needs He will fulfill;
Tho' beasts of forest lack their food,
Those seeking God shall want no good.

6 Ye children, come and hear my voice,
And learn to make God's fear your choice;
Who seek long life and happy days
Must learn to walk in wisdom's ways.

7 Who fears the Lord must keep his tongue
From evil and his lips from wrong,
Must do the good, from evil cease,
And ever seek and follow peace.
