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 us join to praise our Maker,
Let us worship him our King;
And with angels be partaker,
And glad songs of praises sing.
See the wonders he has wrought!
His grace exceeds ev'ry thought.
2 Praise the Father who esteem'd us,
Who is ever kind and good;
Praise the Son who hath redeem'd us,
Be the shedding of his blood:
By his blessed Spirit's aid,
Heirs of heaven we are made.
3 Let us join with ev'ry nation,
And with all who praise the Lord;
Thank the Lord for our salvation,
And the knowledge of his word:
For the word of life and peace,
That of joy and happiness.
4 Praise the Lord for ev'ry blessing,
Which we constantly receive:
Grace and love is never missing:
Let us praise him while we live:
Worthless creatures as we are,
Yet the objects of his care.
5 Numberless are all his graces,
More than we can ever know;
Should we joint to sing his praises,
Here with all on earth below:
All would fail to speak his worth,
Or to set his praises forth.
6 Praises be to God for ever,
Praise him all ye hosts above!
Grace and mercy faileth never:
With our God, the God of love.
Glory, honour, praise and pow'r,
Be to God for evermore.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.) #CCCXV
