We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Lord, when our raptur'd thought surveys

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XXXI (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual Thanks for Mercies, temporal and spiritual Lyrics: 1 Lord, when our raptur'd thought surveys Creation's beauties o'er, All nature joins to teach thy praise, And bid our souls adore. 2 The living tribes of countless forms, In earth, and sea, and air, The meanest flies, the smallest worms Almighty pow'r declare. 3 Thy wisdom, power, and goodness, Lord, In all thy works appear; And, O! let man thy praise record, Man, thy distinguish'd care! 4 From thee the breath of life he drew; That breath thy pow'r maintains; Thy tender mercy, ever new, His brittle frame sustains. 5 Yet nobler favors claim his praise; Of reason's light possess'd; By revelation's brightest rays, Still more divinely bless'd. 6 Thy providence, his constant guard, When threat'ning woes impend; Or will th' impending dangers ward, Or timely succours lend. 7 On us that providence has shone, With gentle, smiling rays: O, may our lips and lives make known Thy goodness and thy praise!

O praise the Lord, our heavenly King

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XLIII (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual Thanksgiving for the Fruits of the Earth Lyrics: 1 O praise the Lord, our heav'nly King, Who makes the earth his care; Visits the pastures ev'ry spring, And bids the grass appear. 2 The clouds, like rivers rais'd on high, Pour out, at his command, Their wat'ry blessings from the sky, To cheer the thirsty land. 3 The soften'd ridges of the field Permit the corn to spring; The vallies rich provision yield, And the glad labourers sing. 4 The little hills, on ev'ry side, Rejoice at falling show'rs; The meadows, dress'd in all their pride, Perfume the air with flow'rs. 5 The barren clods, refresh'd with rain, Promise a joyful crop; The parching grounds look green again, And raise the reaper's hope. 6 The various months thy goodness crowns; How bounteous are thy ways! The bleating flocks spread o'er the downs, And shepherds shout thy praise. 7 Thine is the cheerful day, and thine The still returns of night; Thou hast prepar'd the glorious sun And ev'ry feebler light. 8 By thee the borders of the earth In perfect order stand; The summer's warmth and winter's cold Attend on thy command.

The Lord is my shepherd, my guardian, and guide

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XXXVII (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual God our Shepherd Lyrics: 1 The Lord is my shepherd, my guardian, and guide; Whatsoever I want, he will kindly provide; To the sheep of his pasture his mercies abound, His care and protection his flock will surround; If e'er from his fold they should wander abroad, His care will recall them, and fix their abode, Where himself, in the midst, with a provident eye, Will regard all their wants, and provide a supply. 2 The Lord is my shepherd, what then shall I fear? What danger can frighten me while he is near? Not when the time calls me to walk thro' the vale Of the shadow of death, shall my heart ever fail; Tho' afraid, of myself, to pursue the dark way, Thy rod and thy staff be my comfort and stay; For I know, by thy guidance, when once it is past, To a fountain of life it will bring me at last. 3 The Lord is become my salvation and song, His blessings shall follow me all my life long; Whatsoever condition he places me in, I am sure 'tis the best it could ever have been; For the Lord he is good, and his mercies are sure; He only afflicts us, in order to cure; The Lord will I praise while I have any breath, Be content all my life, and resign'd in my death.

When Israel through the desert pass'd

Hymnal: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #XXXII (1789) Topics: Blessings temporal and spiritual The Advantage of Divine Revelation Lyrics: 1 When Israel through the desert pass'd, A fiery pillar went before, To guide them through the dreary waste, And lessen the fatigue they bore. 2 Such is thy glorious word of God; 'Tis for our light and guidance given; It sheds its lustre all abroad, And points the path to bliss and heaven. 3 It fills the soul with sweet delight, And quickens its inactive powers; It sets our wandering footsteps right; Displays his love, and kindles ours. 4 Its promises rejoice our heart; Its doctrines are divinely true; Knowledge and pleasure it imparts; It comforts and instructs us too. 5 Ye favour'd lands, bless'd with this word; Ye saints, who feel its saving power; Unite your tongues to praise the Lord, And his distinguish'd grace adore.

Your Maker's praise becomes your voice, Great is your theme, your songs be new: Sing of his name, his word, his ways, His works of nature and of grace, How wise and holy, just and true! 2 Justice and truth he ever loves, And the whole earth his goodness proves, His word the heavenly arches spread; How wide they shine from north to south! And by the spirit of his mouth Were all the starry armies made. 3 He gathers the wide flowing seas Those wat'ry treasures know their place In the vast storehouse of the deep: He spake, and gave all mature birth; And fires, and seas, and heav'n, and earth, His everlasting orders keep. 4 Ye that delight to serve the Lord, The honours of his name record, His sacred name forever bless; Where'er the circling sun displays His rising beams, or setting rays, Let ev'ry tongue his pow'r confess.
