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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Bless, Lord, thine heritage,
In thine abundant grace;
Let on thy servants ever shine
The brightness of thy face.
2. That so thy righteous ways
May through the earth be known;
And all the nations of the world
May thy salvation, own.

3. In praise to thee, O God,
Let thine own people join;
And may the gentile world, in songs
Of praise, to thee, combine.
4. O let the nations all
Be glad, and cheerful sing;
For thou art, over all the earth,
A just, and gracious King.

5. In praise to thee, O God,
Let thine own people join;
And may the gentile world, in songs
Of praise, to thee, combine.
6. Then the earth shall plenty yield;
And God shall bless our store.
7. Our own God shall us bless; the world
Shall fear and him adore.
