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

311. Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power

1 Blessing and honor and glory and power,
Wisdom and riches and strength evermore,
Give we to him who our battle has won,
Whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne.

2 Hear through the heavens the sound of his name,
While rings the earth with his glory and fame;
Ocean and mountain, stream, forest, and flower
Echo His praises and tell of his power.

3 Ever ascending the song and the prayer;
Ever descending the love that we share;
Blessing and honor and glory and praise—
This is the theme of the hymns that we raise.

4 Give we the glory and praise to the Lamb;
Take we the robe and the harp and the palm;
Sing we the song of the Lamb that was slain,
Dying in weakness, but rising to reign.
