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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O Lord, You are my God and King,
And I will ever bless Your Name.
I will extol You every day,
And evermore Thy praise proclaim.
You, Lord, are greatly to be praised.
Your greatness is beyond our thoughts;
All generations shall tell forth
The mighty wonders You have wrought.

2 How rich in grace are You, O Lord

To all Your works Your love extends,
All souls Your tender mercies share.

3 Your works will give You thanks, O Lord,
Your saints Your mighty acts will show,
Till all the peoples of the earth
Your kingdom, power, glory know.
Eternal is Your kingdom, Lord,
Forever strong, forever sure;
While generations rise and die,
Your high dominion will endure.

Presbyterian Hymnal, 1990
