Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 God be merciful unto us and bless us,
and show us the light of his countenance,
and be merciful unto us;

2 That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

In unison
3 Let the people praise thee O God;
yea let all the people praise thee.

4 O let the nations rejoice and be glad;
for thou shalt judge the folk righteously,
and govern the nations upon the earth.

In unison
5 Let the people praise thee O God;
yea let all the people praise thee.

6 Then shall the earth bring forth her increase;
and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.

7 God shall bless us;
and all the ends of the world shall fear him.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
