Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Keep the Praise Waves Rolling

Full Text

1 Lift your voices to the Lord,
sweetly sing in true accord,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Joyous carols let us raise,
He is worthy of our praise,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on,

Chorus:
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on.
Let the hallelujahs ring to our everlasting King,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on.

2 Praise His name in ev'ry place,
praise His soul-redeeming grace,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Till the angels fair above,
Hear us singing of His love,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on, [Chorus]

3 Till in yonder world of light
we behold His glory bright,
Keep the praise waves rolling on,
Keep the praise waves rolling on;
Till with all the saved we sing
in the palace of the King,
Keep the praise waves rolling on, rolling on, [Chorus]
