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

1 O my soul, bless your Redeemer;
All within me, bless God's Name;
Bless the Savior, and forget not
All God's mercies to proclaim.

2 God forgives all your transgressions,
All diseases gently heals;
God redeems you from destruction,
And with you so kindly deals.

3 Far as east from west is distant,
God has put away our sin'
Life the pity of a father
Has the Lord's compassion been.

4 As it was without beginning,
So it lasts without an end;
To their children's children ever
Shall God's righteousness extend.

5 Unto such as keep God's covenant
And are steadfast in God's way;
Unto those who still remember
The commandments and obey.

6 Bless your Maker, all you creatures,
Ever under God's control,
All throughout God's vast dominion;
Bless the Lord of all, my soul!
