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, 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

61. Lift Your Heart to the Lord

Lift your heart to the Lord
and make this a day of rejoicing.
God is our strength and song:
glory and praise to his name!

1 Here God's life-giving word
once more is proclaimed to his people,
uplifting those who are down,
challenging all with its truth. (Refrain)

2 All those baptized into Christ
share the glory of his resurrection,
dying with him unto sin,
walking in newness of life. (Refrain)

3 Summoned by Jesus' command,
all his people draw near to his table,
gladly to meet with their Lord,
known in the breaking of bread. (Refrain)
