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.

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

74. I Cannot Refrain from Praising Him

1 Oh, when I remember God’s goodness to me,
I cannot refrain from praising him;
When he from such bondage hath set me free,
I cannot refrain from praising him.

Refrain:
I cannot refrain from praising him,
I cannot refrain from praising him;
For when I remember his goodness to me,
I cannot refrain from praising him.

2 Oh, when I remember his goodness to me,
I cannot refrain from praising him;
The tho’t makes me happy as happy can be,
I cannot refrain from praising him. [Refrain]

3 Oh, when I remember his goodness to me,
I cannot refrain from praising him;
His Son freely suffered on Calvary’s tree,
I cannot refrain from praising him. [Refrain]

4 Oh, when I remember his goodness to me,
I cannot refrain from praising him;
All over creation his goodness I see,
I cannot refrain from praising him. [Refrain]
