Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 Give thanks unto the Lord, Jehovah,
for he is good, O praise his name!
Let Israel say: "The Lord be praised;,
his mercy ever is the same."
Let Aaron's house now praise Jehovah;
the Lord is good, O praise his name.
Let all that fear the Lord extol him;
his mercy ever is the same.

2 In a large place the Lord has set me;
in my distress he heard my cry.
I will not fear; the Lord is with me -
What can man do, when God is nigh?
The Lord is chief among my helpers;
and I shall see my foes o'erthrown:
far better than in man or princes,
my trust I place in God alone.

3 I shall not die, but live, declaring
the works of God, who tried me sore,
and chastened me, but in his mercy
not unto death has giv'n me o'er.
The gates of righteousness set open,
the gate of God! I'll enter in
to praise you, Lord, who pray'r have answered,
and have saved me from all my sin.

4 The stone - O Lord, it is your doing -
the stone, the builders did despise,
is made the headstone of the corner,
and it is marv'lous in our eyes.
This is the day, of days most glorious,
the Lord hath made; we'll joy and sing.
Send now prosperity, we pray, Lord;
and, O our God, salvation bring!
