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.
1 Praise God on the throne of his power,
For great and eternal he reigns!
Praise him from the valleys of earth,
And praise him from mountains and plains.
Praise him who liveth forever,
With glory enthroned in the sky;
Praise him, ye living creation,
While nature’s glad voices reply.
2 Praise God, O ye depths and ye heights!
Praise him, O ye winds of the sea!
Praise him, O ye clouds of the air,
For great and almighty is he. [Refrain]
3 Ye worlds, that, revolving afar,
Are yet but the work of his hands,
Give praise that, pursuing your course,
Ye follow eternal commands. [Refrain]
4 Praise God, O ye children of men,
Ye humble and holy of heart;
Take thou in creation’s great song
The noblest and worthiest part. [Refrain]
5 This earth that is mortal will fail,
But years everlasting are thine!
Praise God for this holiest gift,
This mercy, this blessing divine. [Refrain]Source: Joyful Sound: a collection of new hymns and music with familiar selections #48
