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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

255. The Living God Be Praised

1 The living God be praised,
who reigns enthroned above,
ancient of everlasting days,
and God of love.
Jehovah, great I Am!
By earth and heaven confessed,
we bow before your holy name,
forever blest.

2 Your spirit still flows free,
high surging where it will:
in prophet's word you spoke of old
and you speak still.
Established is your law,
and changeless it shall stand,
inscribed upon the human heart,
on sea, on land.

3 You have eternal life
implanted in the soul;
your love shall be our strength and stay,
while ages roll.
We praise you, living God!
We praise your holy name;
the first, the last, beyond all thought,
and still the same.
