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

Bonum est

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, And to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High!

Published in 215 hymnals

Full Text

1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD,
and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most High;

2 To show forth Thy loving-kindness in the morning,
and Thy faithfulness every night.

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings and upon the psaltery,
upon the harp with a solemn sound.

4 For Thou, O Lord, hast made me glad through Thy work;
I will triumphs in the works of Thy hands.

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

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