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

In praise of God meet duty and delight

Author: Erik Reginald Routley, 1917-82 Hymnal: Together in Song #471 (1999) Meter: Hymnal Title: Together in Song Lyrics: 1 In praise of God meet duty and delight, creatures of earth and heavenly spirits blest: in praise is earth transfigured by the sound and sight of Heaven's everlasting feast. 2 In praise meet those with skill in art and crafts, inspired, obedient, patient, practical; in praise join instrument and voice and mind to make one music for the Lord of all. 3 The desert is refreshed by songs of praise, relaxed the frown of pride, the stress of grief; in praise forgotten all our human spite; in praise the burdened heart finds sure relief. 4 No skill of ours, no music made on earth, no mortal song could scale the height of heaven; yet stands the cross, through grace ineffable an instrument of praise to sinners given. 5 So, confident and festive, let us sing of wisdom, power and mercy there made known: the song of Moses and the Lamb be ours, through Christ raised up to life in God alone. Topics: Art and Learning; Confidence; Cross; Festal Joy; Glory of God; Grace; Grief; Music; Our Gifts to God; People of God; Resurrection; Worship Earthly and Heavenly Scripture: Colossians 3:16-17 Languages: English Tune Title: CLIFF TOWN
