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

141. Praise Ye, Praise Ye the Lord

1 Praise ye, praise ye the Lord
in yonder heav'nly height;
ye angels, all his hosts,
in joyful praise unite.
O sun and moon, declare his might;
show forth his praise, ye stars of light.

2 Praise him, ye highest heav'ns,
praise him, ye clouds that roll,
created by his power
and under his control,
ye heav'ns that stand eternally,
established by his firm decree.

3 Ye creatures in the sea
and creatures on the earth,
Yyur mighty Maker praise,
and tell his matchless worth.
Praise him, ye stormy winds that blow,
ye fire and hail, ye rains and snow.

4 Ye hills and mountains, praise:
each tree and beast and bird;
ye kings and realms of earth,
now let your praise be heard;
by high and low, by young and old,
be all his praise and glory told.

5 By all let God be praised
for he alone is great;
above the earth and heaven
he reigns in glorious state.
Praise him, ye saints who know his grace,
and ever dwell before his face.
