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

41. The Praises of Thy Wonders, Lord

1 The praises of thy wonders, Lord,
the heavens shall express;
and in the congregation
of saints thy faithfulness.

2 Thou hast an arm that's full of pow'r;
thy hand is great in might;
and thy right hand exceedingly
exalted is in height.

3 Justice and judgment of thy throne
are made the dwelling place;
mercy, accompanied with truth,
shall go before thy face.

4 O greatly blessed the people are
the joyful sound that know;
in brightness of thy face, O Lord,
they ever on shall go.

5 Because the glory of their strength
doth only stand in thee;
and in thy favor shall our horn
and pow'r exalted be.

6 For God is our defense; and he
to us doth safety bring:
the Holy One of Israel
is our almighty King.
