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.

Representative Text

1 Praise, oh! praise the great Jehovah,
Friend of sinners, true and tried;
Shout for joy, be glad before Him,
Le the Lord be magnified.

Shout for gladness,
Ye who love His righteous cause;
Magnify His name forever;
Honor all His holy laws.

2 Oh, how wide His boundless mercy,
Mightier still His tender love;
Say with all the hosts triumphant,
Magnify the Lord above. [Refrain]

3 While the sun shall shine for heaven,
Stars in circling orbits roll,
Let your notes of praise continue,
Echo wide from pole to pole. [Refrain]

4 Christ the King is our Redeemer,
Christ the light of yonder throne,
Glory, honor, might, and power,
Be to Him, and Him alone. [Refrain]
