Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

624. We Give Immortal Praise

1 We give immortal praise
to God the Father’s love,
for all our comforts here,
and better hopes above;
Hh sent his own eternal Son
to die for sins that we had done.

2 To God the Son belongs
immortal glory too,
who bought us with his blood
from everlasting woe:
and now he lives, and now he reigns,
and sees the fruit of all his pains.

3 To God the Spirit’s name
immortal worship give,
whose new-creating power
makes the dead sinner live;
his work completes the great design
and wills the world with joy divine.

4 Almighty God, to thee
be endless honor done,
the undivided Three
And the mysterious One:
where reason fails with all her powers,
there faith prevails, and love adores.
