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.
Harry Plantinga

O praise the Lord, and thou my soul

Representative Text

1,2 O praise the Lord, and thou, my Soul,
for ever bless his Name:
His wond'rous Love, while Life shall last,
my constant Praise shall claim.
3 On Kings, the greatest Sons of Men,
let none for Aid rely;
then cannot save in dang'rous Times,
nor timely Help apply

4 Depriv'd of Breath, to Dust thy turn,
and there neglected lie,
And all their Thoughts and vain Designs
together with them die.
5 Then happy he, who Jacob's God
for his Protector takes;
Who still, with well-plac'd Hope, the Lord
his constant Refuge makes.

6 The Lord, who made both Heav'n and Earth,
and all that they contain,
Will never quit his stedfast Truth,
nor make his Promise vain.
7 The poor opprest, from all their Wrongs
are eas'd by his Decree;
He gives the hungry needful Food,
and sets the Pris'ners free.

8 By Him the blind receive their Sight,
the weak and fall'n He rears:
With kind Regard and tender Love
he for the righteous cares.
9 The Strangers He preserves from Harm,
the Orphan kindly treats,
Defends the Widow, and the Wiles
of wicked Men defeats.

10 The God, that does in Sion dwell,
is our eternal King;
From Age to Age his Reign endures,
let all his Praises sing.
