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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

XCIX. Psalm XCIX

1 The Lord doth reign, although at it
the people rage full sore:
Yea, on the cherubims doth sit,
though all the world do roar.

2 The Lord that doth in Zion dwell,
is high and wondrous great,
Above all folk he doth excel,
and he aloft is set.

3 Let all men praise thy mighty Name,
for it is fearful sure;
And let them magnify the same,
that holy is and pure,

4 The princely power of our King
doth love judgement and right;
Thou rightly rulest ev'ry thing
in Jacob through thy might.

5 To praise the Lord our God devise,
all honor to him show;
And at his footstool worship him,
that holy is and true.

6 Moses, Aaron, and Samuel,
as priests on him did call;
When they did pray he heard them well,
and gave them answer all.

7 Within the cloud to them he spake,
then did they labor still
To keep such laws as he did make
according to his will.

8 O Lord our God, thou didst them hear,
and answer'dst them again:
But their inventions punishedst,
which foolish were and vain.

9 O praise our God and Lord therefore
upon his holy hill:
For why? our God whom we adore
is the most holy still.
