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

Representative Text

1 Lift up, my soul, thy praises,
For God is on His throne,
Above all earthly kingdoms
He reigns in pow’r alone!
The Lord of all the nations,
Eternal King of all,
To even me He listens,
And hears me when I call!

Lift up, my soul, thy praises, to the King,
His boundless love and saving grace,
Forever sing.

2 To Him I’ll freely render
The best that life can give,
And count it joy and blessing,
In His dear love to live!
He is my King forever,
And I will sing His praise,
With all-increasing rapture,
Thro’ all my length’ning days. [Refrain]

3 Lift up, my soul, thy praises
That such a Friend is thine,
And sing a song of gladness,
For all His love divine!
My Lord, my King, my Saviour,
My ever-present Friend,
I’ll love Thee and I’ll praise Thee,
With joy that knows no end! [Refrain]
