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. I have tried to count His blessings,
and I fail to understand
Why the Lord should so richly reward;
Could I count the stars of heaven,
add to them earth’s grains of sand,
Still His blessings are more, praise the Lord!

Refrain
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord;
Blessings new He’s still bestowing,
And my cup is overflowing,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord!

2. Like an army I behold them
pass before me in review,
O what joy doth the sight now afford!
Tho’ they may be long in passing,
still they come, battalions new,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord! [Refrain]

3. Surely goodness, love and mercy
have been mine along life’s way,
And my weak heart to strength is restored;
And my cup of joy and gladness
keeps o’erflowing, day by day,
And the end is not yet, praise the Lord! [Refrain]
