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.

Clap hands, all people, shout to God

Clap hands, all people, shout to God

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Clap hands, all people, shout to God;
With voice of triumph to him sing;
2. For God, most high, is terrible;
O'er all the earth, he's a great King.
3. He makes the people to submit;
And nations at our feet couch down
4. Our heritage, for us, he chose;
His loved Jacob's glorious drown.

5. God is ascended with a shout;
Jehovah with the trumpet's lays.
6. Sing praises to our God, praise sing;
Sing praises to our King, sing praise.
7. For God, of all the earth, is King;
Your deepest skill in praise be shown.
8. God reigneth over heathen lands;
God sits upon his holy throne.

9. Princes of nations freely join,
To serve the God of Abraham;
For shields of the earth to God belong,
Exalted greatly is his name.
