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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord in song today,
In carols exultant and sweet;
Come within his holy temple,
Round his altar meet.
With the saints and angels offer
Tributes of homage and love;
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer above.

Refrain:
Praise him, praise him,
Let the chorus ring!
Praise him, praise him,
All with gladness sing;
Praise him, praise him,
Joyful anthems bring!
Praise him, praise him,
Praise our Savior and our King.

2 Praise the Lord for ev’ry gift
He sends to his people below;
Offer thanks for all his blessings
That his hands bestow.
Day by day his mercy lead us,
Safely we go on our way;
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer today. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord with heart and soul,
Oh, worship and honor his name;
Unto ev’ry generation
Is his love the same.
Ruler, Shepherd, Friend and Brother,
Give him all glory and love,
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer above. [Refrain]
