During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Now let all loudly

Representative Text

1 Now let all loudly
Sing praise to God the Lord;
Christendom, proudly
Laud him with one accord.
Gently he bids you come before him.
Haste, then, O Israel, now adore him!
Haste, then, O Israel, now adore him!

2 The Lord is reigning
Over the universe,
The world sustaining.
All things his praise rehearse.
The angel host his glory telling,
Psalter and harp are the anthem swelling.
Psalter and harp are the anthem swelling.

3 Come, heathen races,
Cast off all grief and cares,
For pleasant places
Your Savior now prepares,
Where his blest Word abroad is sounded,
Pardon for sinners and grace unbounded;
Pardon for sinners and grace unbounded.

4 Richly he feeds us
Always and ev'rywhere.
Gently he leads us
With a true father's care.
The late and early rains he sends us.
Daily his blessing, his love, attends us.
Daily his blessing, his love, attends us.

5 Sing we his praises
Who is thus merciful.
Christendom raises
Songs to his glorious rule.
Rejoice! No foe shall now alarm us.
He will protect us, and who can harm us?
He will protect us, and who can harm us?

Translator: Catherine Winkworth

Catherine Winkworth (b. Holborn, London, England, 1827; d. Monnetier, Savoy, France, 1878) is well known for her English translations of German hymns; her translations were polished and yet remained close to the original. Educated initially by her mother, she lived with relatives in Dresden, Germany, in 1845, where she acquired her knowledge of German and interest in German hymnody. After residing near Manchester until 1862, she moved to Clifton, near Bristol. A pioneer in promoting women's rights, Winkworth put much of her energy into the encouragement of higher education for women. She translated a large number of German hymn texts from hymnals owned by a friend, Baron Bunsen. Though often altered, these translations continue to be used i… Go to person page >
