We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Praise GOD in that bless'd Place,
From whence his Goodness flows,
In Heav'n, where he his Face
Unveil'd in Glory shows.
Praise him, for with the mighty Acts
Which he for us hath done,
Our Praise should equal run.
His Kindness this Return exacts.

2 Let the shrill Trumpet's Voice
Make Rocks his Praise resound;
Praise him with Harp's sweet Noise,
And Psaltries Silver sound.
Let graceful Virgins lead the Dance,
And sprightly Timbrels bring;
Let ev'ry warbling String,
With Organs join'd, his Praise advance.

3 Let them who Hymns compose,
To Cymbals set their Praise,
Of common Use, and those
That sound on solemn Days.
The Breath he does to them afford,
Let them who Life enjoy,
In Songs of Praise employ,
