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 Loud swell in choral numbers,
The praise of Jesus’ name;
His goodness, truth and mercy
Let young and old proclaim;
Exalt Him, O ye people,
And crown Him, while ye sing,
The Lord of life eternal,
Creator, Savior, King.

"How blessèd are the people
That know the joyful sound,"
Whose strains shall yet be wafted
To earth’s remotest bound.

2 We blend our happy voices,
We lift our hearts above;
We thank our kind protector
For all His tender love;
How bright the year departed,
With blessings passed away;
Loud swell our choral numbers
On this glad, festive day. [Refrain]

3 Hosanna in the highest,
Our grateful song shall be;
Hosanna in the highest,
Our Savior God, to Thee;
And when, with all the ransomed,
Around Thy throne we meet,
We’ll cast our crowns before Thee,
And worship at Thy feet. [Refrain]
