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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 In the murmur of the breeze
There is music low and sweet,
In the gently waving trees,
And the flow’rs beneath our feet.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Is the language of the skies;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Nature’s happy voice replies.

2 And the bird on airy wing
Seems in merry tones to say,
God has taught me how to sing,
I must praise him all the day. [Refrain]

3 Let our hearts take up the strain,
Let us praise him o’er and o’er,
Let us join the glad refrain,
Till we sing on earth no more. [Refrain]
