We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Representative Text

1 Nun jauchzt dem Herren alle Welt!
Kommt der, zu seinem Dienst euch stellt,
kommt mit Frohlocken, säumet nicht,
kommt vor sein heilig Angesicht.

2 Erkennt, daß Gott ist unser Herr,
der uns erschaffen ihm zur Ehr,
und nicht mir selbst; durch Gottes Gnad
ein jeder Mensch sein leben hat.

3 Er hat uns ferner wohlbedacht,
und uns zu seinem Volk gemacht,
zu Schaafen, die er ist bereit
zu führen stets auf grüner Weid.

4 Ihr, die ihr bei ihm wollet sein,
kommt, geht zu seinen Thoren ein
mit Loben durch der Psalmen Klang,
zu seinem Vorhof mit Gesang.

5 Dankt unserm Gott, lobsinget ihm,
lobsinget ihm, mit lauter Stimm,
lobsingt und danket allesammt;
Gott loben, das ist unser Amt.

6 Er ist voll Güt und Freundlichkeit,
voll Treu und Lieb zu jeder Zeit,
sein Gnade währet dort und hier
und seine Wahrheit für und für.

7 Gott Vater in dem höchsten Thron,
und Jesus Christ, sein einger Sohn,
sammt Gott dem werthen heilgen Geist
sei nun und immerdar gepreist.

In 1629 he became tutor to the sons of Duke Georg of Brunswick-Lüneburg, and under father and sons held various important offices, such as, 1639, the direction of the foundation of Bursfeld, and in 1642 a member of the Consistory at Hannover. He died at Hannover, April 1, 1680 (Koch, iii. 237; Bode, p. 58).

William Kethe (b. Scotland [?], d. Dorset England, c. 1594). Although both the time and place of Kethe's birth and death are unknown, scholars think he was a Scotsman. A Protestant, he fled to the continent during Queen Mary's persecution in the late 1550s. He lived in Geneva for some time but traveled to Basel and Strasbourg to maintain contact with other English refugees. Kethe is thought to be one of the scholars who translated and published the English-language Geneva Bible (1560), a version favored over the King James Bible by the Pilgrim fathers. The twenty-five psalm versifications Kethe prepared for the Anglo-Genevan Psalter of 1561 were also adopted into the Scottish Psalter of 1565. His versification of Psalm 100 (All People that… Go to person page >
