Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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.

Refrain:
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]
