Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Let thanks and praises be to God

Representative Text

1 Let thanks and praises be to God,
For what we have enjoy'd,
His blessings were on us bestow'd,
Whilst we were thus employ'd.

2 In couns'ling on the needful plan,
To build his church below,
And shew the will of God to man,
As faithful teachers do.

3 We praise the Lord who gave us grace,
To call on him for aid;
His presence rested on this place,
For which we humbly pray'd.

4 We trust we labour'd not in vain,
In all that we have done,
'Twas to instruct our fellow-men,
And make the Saviour known.
