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 within me praise

Full Text

1 Let all within me praise the name
Of heaven’s all-gracious King;
His truth and love my tongue will tell,
And all His wonders sing.

Refrain:
O praise the Lord, His goodness own;
Wide let the tidings roll;
His mercy brings salvation down;
O praise the Lord, my soul!

2 How dark this heart of sin would be,
Without one cheering ray!
But Jesus comes, the Star of Hope,
And brings celestial day. [Refrain]

3 O breathe Thy holy Gift again,
Come shed Thy love divine;
We long to praise Thee more and more,
And in Thy glory shine. [Refrain]
