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 hearty thanks and praise be paid
By all who join'd to pray;
When ardent pray'r to God was made,
To turn his wrath away.
2 We were deliver'd by the Lord,
When we were much distress'd;
Our feeble cries and pray'rs were heard,
And we have peace and rest.
3 Distress came on us like a flood,
And great was our alarm;
But through the mercies of our God
Our lives were kept from harm.
4 To God alone shall be our praise,
To him, and none besides;
His love, his mercy and his grace,
For all we need provides.
5 Then let us join his praise to sing,
As christians ought to do:
And worship him our Lord and King,
Who guards us here below.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.) #CLV
