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

Worship and Its Motives

Full Text

1 O come and to Jehovah sing,
To Him our voices raise;
let us in our most joyful songs
The Lord our Saviour praise,
The Lord our Saviour praise.

2 Before His presence let us come
With praise and thankful voice;
Let us sing psalms to Him with grace,
With grateful hearts rejoice,
With grateful hearts rejoice.

3 Jehovah is a mighty King,
Above all gods His throne;
The depths of earth are in His hand,
The mountains are His own,
The mountains are His own.

4 to Him the spacious sea belongs,
He made its waves and tides;
And by his hand the rising land
Was formed, and still abides,
Was formed, and still abides.

5 O come, and bowing down to Him
Our worship let us bring;
Yea, let us kneel before the Lord,
Our Maker and our King,
Our Maker and our King.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
