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

O Praise the Lord, for He Is Good

Full Text

1 O praise the Lord, for he is good,
his mercies still endure;
thus say the ransomed of the Lord,
from all their foes secure.

2 He gathered them from out the lands,
from north, south, east and west.
They strayed in desert's pathless way,
No city found for rest.

3 Their weary soul within them faints
when thirst and hunger press;
in trouble then they cried to God,
he saved them from distress.

4 He made the way before them straight,
himself became their guide,
that they might to a city go
wherein they might abide.

5 O that men would Jehovah praise
for all his kindness shown,
and for his works so wonderful
which he to men makes known!

6 Because the longing soul by him
with food is satisfied,
the hungry soul that looks to him
with goodness is supplied.
