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.

The Excellency of God

Representative Text

1 My God, I will extol Thee
And ever bless Thy Name;
Each day will I give thanks to Thee
And all Thy praise proclaim.
Great is the Lord and mighty,
And highly to be praised;
His greatness is unsearchable,
Above our knowledge raised.

2 To every generation
thy glory shall be told,
Thy honor and Thy majesty
In memory I will hold;
Thy mighty power and greatness
Shall all mankind confess,
And tell the story of Thy love,
And sing Thy righteousness.

3 The Lord is very gracious
And most compassionate;
His anger is most slow to rise,
His mercy is most great;
On all His helpless creatures
His tender mercies rest;
By all His works He shall be praised,
By all His saints be blest.

4 The glory of His kingdom
Proclaimed abroad shall be,
That all may know His mighty deeds
And glorious majesty;
His kingdom is eternal,
His throne shall stand secure,
And His dominion without end
Through ages shall endure.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
