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.
1 Let all in heav'n their praises bring,
All on the earth and in the seas,
Unite and worship him our King,
And shew the wonders of his grace.
2 The brightest angels near his throne,
With all the happy hosts above,
Delight to make his glories known,
And shew the greatness of his love.
3 But O his love is greater still,
Than men or angels can concieve;
None are so wise as to reveal
His boundless love, by which we live.
4 Immensely great and numberless,
Are the bless'd bounties of his hands:
The vilest sinners must confess,
Tho' they abuse his just commands.
5 Should we not love and praise that God,
On whom the hosts of heav'n attend,
Yet condescends to our abode,
And visits us like as a friend.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCCXIII
