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

54. Hallelujah! Raise, O Raise

1 Hallelujah! Raise, O raise
to our God the song of praise;
all his servants join to sing
God our Savior and our King.

2 Blessed be forevermore
that dread name which we adore:
round the world his praise be sung
through all lands, in ev'ry tongue.

3 O'er all nations God alone,
higher than the heav'ns his throne;
who is like to God Most High,
infinite in majesty!

4 Yet to view the heav'ns he bends;
yea, to earth he condescends;
passing by the rich and great,
for the low and desolate.

5 He can raise the poor to stand
with the princes of the land;
wealth upon the needy show'r:
set him with the high in pow'r.

6 He the broken spirit cheers:
turns to joy the mourner's tears;
such the wonders of his ways;
praise his name, forever praise!
