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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 O thank the LORD; for he is good,
For ever are his mercies sure:
2 Thanks give ye to the God of GODS;
His mercies evermore endure.
3 Thanks give ye to the Lord of Lords:
For ever are his mercies sure:
4 Him who alone does wonders great;
His mercies evermore endure.

5 To Him whose wisdom made the heav'ns;
For ever are his mercies sure:
6 Who o'er the waters spread the earth;
His mercies evermore endure.
7 To Him who made great lights to shine;
For ever are his mercies sure.
The sun to guide and rule the day,
His mercies evermore endure.

9 The moon and stars to rule the night;
For ever are his mercies sure.
10 Who the first born of Egypt smote;
His mercies evermore endure.
11 Who from among them Isr'el brought;
For ever are his mercies sure.
12 With a strong hand and stretch'd out arm;
His mercies evermore endure.

13 Who the red sea asunder clave;
For ever are his mercies sure.
14 And thro' the midst made Isr'el go;
His mercies evermore endure.
15 But there drown'd Pharoah and his host;
For ever are his mercies sure.
16 His people thro' the desart led,
His mercies evermore endure.

17 To Him who mighty kings did smite;
For ever are his mercies sure.
18 And famous kings in battle slew;
His mercies evermore endure.
19 King Sihon of the Amorites;
For ever are his mercies sure.
20 And Ogg of bashan mighty king;
His mercies evermore endure.

21 And gave their land an heritage:
For ever are his mercies sure.
22 To his dear servant Israel;
His mercies evermore endure.
23 Who minds us in our low estate;
For ever are his mercies sure.
24 And who redeems us from our foes,
His mercies evermore endure.

25 Who to all flesh gives proper food;
For ever are his mercies sure.
26 O to the God of heav'n give thanks,
His mercies evermore endure.
