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

75. Praise the Lord! O Heavens, Adore Him

1 Praise the Lord! O heavens, adore him;
praise him, angels in the height;
sun and moon, bow down before him;
praise him, shining stars of light.
Praise the Lord, for he hath spoken;
worlds his mighty voice obeyed:
laws which never shall be broken
for their guidance he has made.

2 Praise the Lord, for he is gracious;
never shall his promise fail;
God has made his saints victorious:
sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation;
hosts on high, his power proclaim;
heaven and earth, and all creation,
laud and magnify his name.
