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.

All the World is Praising Him

Like the sound of many waters, Over the roaring of the sea

Representative Text

1 Like the sound of many waters,
Or the roaring of the sea,
Voices of earth’s sons and daughters
Swell the song of Jubilee.

Hark the song! all the world is praising Him!
The world is praising Him, the word is praising Him!
O, praise the Lord! all the world is praising Him,
An anthem grand and free.

2 Lands once dumb have found their voices,
And the chorus rings more clear;
In his course the sun rejoices,
Voices new each day to hear. [Refrain]

3 Grander, fuller swells the chorus,
New-born nations raise the cry;
Golden days are just before us;
Praise to Him who rules the sky. [Refrain]

4 Mountains high or surging ocean
Can not stem the tuneful tide;
Death takes up the sweet devotion,
Joins the song the other side. [Refrain]
