We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Great is the Lord, 'tis good to praise

Great is the Lord, 'tis good to praise

Author: Eliza R. Snow
Published in 17 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Great is the Lord; ’tis good to praise
His high and holy name.
Well may the Saints in latter days
His wondrous love proclaim.

2. The Comforter is sent again,
His pow’r the Church attends,
And with the faithful will remain
Till Jesus Christ descends.

3. We’ll praise him for a prophet’s voice,
His people’s steps to guide;
In this we do and will rejoice,
Tho all the world deride.

4. To praise him let us all engage,
For unto us is giv’n
To live in this momentous age
And share the light of heav’n.
