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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Established in the highest heavens
The Lord has set his throne.
And over all His kingdom rules,
For He is God alone.

2 Ye angels that excel in strength,
Bless ye the Lord, your God;
Ordained to hear and do his will,
Proclaim His praise abroad.

3 Bless ye the lord, all ye His hosts
That serve the Lord, your King,
And wilt His pleasure to perform;
To Him your praises bring.

4 Bless ye the Lord, all ye His works
In His dominion broad,
And, never ceasing, O my soul,
Bless thou the Lord, thy God.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
