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

956. Praise the Lord!

1 Oh, worship God the Father, just and true,
And praise Him for the wonders of His grace;
To Him give thanks for mercies ever new;
Be joyful at the smiling of His face.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord who hath washed us in His blood!
Praise the Lord who hath brought us home to God!
Give Him all, and worship Him alone,
In sweet accord, with angels ’round the throne.

2 The Son hath died to ransom us from death;
Oh, let us sing our dear Redeemer’s praise!
His love proclaim with every fleeting breath;
With songs of glory crown Him all our days. [Refrain]

3 The Spirit shines in us, the holy light,
Oh, blessed, blessed be the heav’nly dove;
He sanctifies and keeps us snowy white,
And fills our hearts with constant peace and love. [Refrain]

4 In one accord, oh, praise the Father’s name!
With songs of triumph magnify the Son,
And give the Spirit just and equal fame;
Oh, glorify the holy Three in One! [Refrain]
