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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the friend who died for thee;
And bless Him for the saving grace,
So rich, so full and free.

Bless the Lord, my soul,
Bless the Lord, my soul;
And all that is within me,
Bless His holy name.

2 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the rock in which we hide;
And bless Him for the sense of peace,
Amid the surging tide. [Refrain]

3 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the hope so sure and sweet;
And bless Him for the loving call
To worship at his feet. [Refrain]

4 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the Guide in days to come;
And bless Him for the crown of life
In thy eternal home. [Refrain]
