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.

I will Praise Him

Representative Text

1 In our days of care and sorrow
Oft we turn, with eyes grown dim,
To the Lord who holds the morrow
And who bids us come to him.

I will praise him, I will praise him,
For his mercy floweth free!
I will praise him, yes, I'll praise him,
For he ever cares for me!
I will praise him, I will praise him,
For his mercy floweth free!
I will praise him, yes, I'll praise him,
For he ever cares for me!

2 When our cup is full of pleasure
And his mercy crowns our days,
He will add unbounded measure,
If we bring him songs of praise. [Chorus]

3 Ev'ry gift, both good and perfect,
All that cometh from above,
Calls for grateful, humble worship,
Songs of praise to prove our love. [Chorus]

4 Let us come with all our sadness,
Weary nights and dreary days,
And in times of joy and gladness
Let us bring him songs of praise. [Chorus]
