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.

Representative Text

1 O praise and bless the Lord, my soul,
His wondrous love proclaim;
Join heart and voice and all my pow'rs
To bless His holy Name.

2 O praise and bless the Lord, my soul,
And ever thankful be;
Forget not all the benefits
He has bestowed on thee.

3 He freely pardons all thy sins,
And He is strong to save;
He heals thy sickness, soothes thy pain,
And ransoms from the grave.

4 He crowns thee with His grace and love,
And, with His strength endued,
Thou mountest up with eagle's wings,
Thy joyous youth renewed.

5 The Lord will judge in righteousness
For all that are oppressed;
To all His saints His gracious acts
And ways are manifest.

6 The Lord is ever merciful,
And unto anger slow;
His loving-kindness and His grace
In rich abundance flow.

7 He will not chide for evermore,
He turns His wrath away;
He has not strictly marked our sins,
Our evil to repay.

8 As heaven is high above the earth,
So great His mercy proves;
As far from us as east from west
He all our sin removes.
