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.

Come let us join to praise our God, Who is our friend indeed

Come let us join to praise our God, Who is our friend indeed

Representative Text

1 Come let us join to praise our God,
Who is our friend indeed:
Who gives us life, and health, and food!
And all what e'er we need.

2 His blessings have endow'd our fields,
And caus'd each plant to grow;
And full supplies to us they yield,
And all that live below.

3 The early and the latter rain,
The Lord was pleas'd to send;
Our barns and kitchens fill'd again,
By him, who is our friend.

4 Our God remembers us in love,
And daily we receive
His gifts and blessings from above:
By which we more and live.

5 The labours of our hands are blest,
Our wants are all supplied;
What e'er doth answer for our best,
The Lord will still provide.

6 We also have his holy word!
And all the means of grace;
Should we not worship him, our Lord?
And sing his endless praise.

7 With joy and wonder we do see,
What God for us has done!
Our songs of praise shall ever be,
To God, our God alone.
