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.

O Lord, Thou Art My God and King

Representative Text

1 O Lord, thou art my God and King;
thee will I magnify and praise:
I will thee bless, and gladly sing
unto thy holy name always.

2 Each day I rise I will thee bless,
and praise thy name time without end:
Much to be praised, and great God is;
his greatness none can comprehend.

3 Race shall thy works praise unto race,
the mighty acts show done by thee;
I will speak of the glorious grace
and honour of thy majesty.

4 Thy wondrous works I will record:
by men the might shall be extolled
of all thy dreadful acts, O Lord:
and I thy greatness will unfold.
