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.

1 Give thanks all ye people, give thanks to the Lord,
Alleluias of freedom with joyful accord;
Let the East and the West, North and South roll along,
Sea and mountain and prairie, one thanksgiving song.

Refrain:
Give thanks all ye people, give thanks to the Lord,
Give thanks all ye people, give thanks to the Lord;
Alleluias of freedom with joyful accord;

2 For sunshine and rainfall, enriching again
Our broad acres in myriads with treasures of grain;
For the earth still unloading her manifold wealth,
For the skies beaming vigor, the winds breathing health. [Refrain]

3 In domes of Messiah, Ye worshiping throngs,
Solemn litanies mingle with jubilant songs;
With the Ruler of nations beseeching to spare,
And our Union to keep, the elect of his care. [Refrain]
