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.

1 Come let us sing with the sacred throng,
Lift the heart where holy angels cry;
Wake every tongue in a joyous song,
To the Lord who reigns on high.
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His Holy name!

Refrain:
Come let us sing with the sacred throng,
Lift the heart where holy angels cry;
Wake every tongue in a joyous song,
To the Lord who reigns on high.

2 Praise we the name of the mighty God;
It is He that made us by His power;
He guides His people with gentle rod,
And upholds us every hour.
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His Holy name! [Refrain]

3 Sing to Jehovah, the great IAM,
For He gave His Son our souls to save;
Sing we to Jesus, the blessed Lamb,
Who redeemed us from the grave.
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His Holy name! [Refrain]
