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

113. Strike the Cymbal

Strike the cymbal, roll the tymbal,
Let the trump of triumph sound;
Powerful slinging! Headlong bringing
Proud Goliath to the ground.
From the river, rejection quiver,
Judah’s hero takes the stone.
Spread your banners! Shout hosannas!
Battle is the Lord’s alone.

See advances, with songs and dances,
All the band of Israel’s daughters;
Catch the sound, ye hills and waters,
Spread your banners! Shout hosannas!
Battle is the Lord’s alone.

God of thunder, Rend assunder,
All the power Philistia boasts!
What are nations? What their stations?
Israel’s God is Lord of hosts.

What are haughty monarchs now?
Lo! before Jehovah bow!
Pride of princes, strength of kings,
To the dust Jehovah brings.
Praise him! praise him, exulting nations, praise,
Praise him! praise him, exulting nations, praise.
Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna.
