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, let praise employ

Praise the Lord, let praise employ

Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, let praise employ
In his courts your songs of joy;
Let the spacious heavens around,
Echo back the solemn sound.

2 Angels, your clear voices raise:
Him, ye heav'nly armies praise:
Sun and moon, with borrow'd light;
All ye sparkling eyes of night;

3 Vapours, lightning, hail and snow;
Storms which, where he bids you, blow;
Waters, hanging in the air;
Heav'n of heav'ns - his praise declare.

4 Let the earth his praise resound;
Echoing rocks, and seas profound;
Verdant vales, and mountains high;
Cedars, tow'ring to the sky.

5 Princes, judges of the earth;
All of high or humble birth;
Youths and virgins, flourishing
In the beauty of your spring;

6 All, whom life and breath inspire,
Come and join the grateful choir;
Come, and all, with one accord,
Join to praise th' Almighty Lord.
