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.

Now shall our hearts with pleasure raise

Now shall our hearts with pleasure raise

Published in 19 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Now shall our hearts with pleasure raise
To our dear Lord a song of praise;
We'll sing his love, his goodness tell,
Our Savior hath done all things well.

2 With pitying eyes he viewed our case,
And came to save our ruined race;
He conquered sin, and death, and hell;
Our Jesus hath done all things well.

3 He undertook to bear our load,
And bring us back again to God;
To fit us with himself to dwell;
Christ Jesus hath done all things well.

4 He will accomplish his design,
And all things in himself combine,
No more shall ever they rebel;
Our Jesus will do all things well.

5 His work how great! his plan how vast!
But when it all appears at last,
It will our highest praise excel,
For Jesus will do all things well.

6 When the creation is restored,
And God shall be by all adored,
How loudly will the triumph swell;
Our Jesus hath done all things well!

7 Sin, death, and hell, will Christ destroy,
And fill the universe with joy;
His love shall then each voice compel
To cry, "He hath done all things well."

8 All creatures then as one shall join,
To shout aloud his praise divine!
(As sacred prophecies foretell)
And say, "he hath done all things well."
