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, 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.

Full Text

1 Let GOD be merciful to us,
and with his favour bless,
And let Him on us cause to shine,
the brightness of his face.
2 That so thy way reveal'd to us
all the glad earth may know;
And that thy great salvation Thou,
may'st to all nations show.

3 O GOD, let all the people round,
give praise to thy name;
Let all the people thro' the world
thy highest praise proclaim.
4 O let the nations sing for joy,
and be exceeding glad;
Thou wilt the people rightly judge,
and all the nations lead. (Selah.)

5 O GOD, let all the people round
give praises to thy name;
Let all the people thro' the world
thy highest praise proclaim.
6 And then the fruitful earth around,
shall yield her great increase;
And GOD, the God who is our own,
shall us with plenty bless.

7 Our GOD will greatly bless us all,
who his own people are;
And all the regions of the earth,
shall Him supremely fear.
