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 It is good to sing Your praises
and to thank You, O Most High,
showing forth Your loving-kindness
when the morning lights the sky.
It is good when night is falling
of Your faithfulness to tell,
while with sweet, melodious praises
songs of adoration swell.

2 You have filled my heart with gladness
through the works Your hands have wrought;
You have made my life victorious;
great Your works and deep Your thought.
You, O Lord, on high exalted,
reign forevermore in might;
all Your enemies shall perish,
sin be banished from Your sight.

3 But the good shall live before You,
planted in Your dwelling place,
fruitful trees and ever verdant,
nourished by Your boundless grace.
In His goodness to the righteous
God His righteousness displays;
God, my Rock, my Strength and Refuge,
just and true are all Your ways.
