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.

Let all together praise our God, upon

Full Text

1 Let all together praise our God
Upon his lofty throne,
For he uncloses heaven today
And gives to us his Son,
And gives to us his Son.

2 He lays aside his majesty
And seems as nothing worth,
And takes on him a servant's form,
Who made the heaven and earth,
Who made the heaven and earth.

3 Behold the wonderful exchange
Our Lord with us does make!
Lo, he assumes our flesh and blood,
And we of heaven partake,
And we of heaven partake.

4 The glorious gates of paradise
The angel guards no more;
This day again those gates unfold.
With praise our God adore,
With praise our God adore!

Amen.
