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.
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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLXVI
