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.

Praise the Lord, his power confess

Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord—His power confess;
Praise Him in His holiness;
Praise Him as the theme inspires,
Praise Him as His fame requires.
Let the trumpets lofty sound;
Spread its loudest notes around;
Let the harp unite in praise,
With the sacred minstrel’s lays.

2 Let the organ join to bless
God, the Lord of righteousness;
Tune your voice to spread the fame
Of the great Jehovah’s name.
All who dwell beneath His light,
In His praise, your hearts unite,
While the stream of song is poured,
Praise and magnify the Lord.
