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.

Representative Text

1 O all ye people clap your hands,
To GOD with shouts of triumph sing:
2 For dreadful is the LORD most high,
O'er all the earth a mighty King.
3 To us the people he subdues;
Lays nations at our feet in fear:
For us an heritage he chose,
The glory of his Jacob dear. (Selah)

5 GOD is gone up in shouts of joy,
The LORD with noise the trumpets raise:
6 Sing praise to GOD, sing praise aloud;
Sing praises to our King, sing praise.
7 For GOD of all the earth is King;
With all your skill his praise be shown:
8 GOD over all the nations reigns;
GOD sits upon his holy throne.

9 To people own'd by Abr'ham's God
The princes of the nations fly:
The shields of th' earth to GOD belong;
O how is He exalted high!
