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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

Praise the Lord, O ye His servants,
Praise the Name of the Lord:
We praise Thee, we hymn Thee, we bless Thee
For Thy great glory.
O Lord the King, the Father of Christ, the Lamb without blemish,
Who taketh away the sin of the world,
To Thee belongeth praise, to Thee belongeth the hymn, to Thee belongeth glory,
The Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
Throughout all ages. Amen.
Now lettest Thou Thy servant depart, O Lord,
According to Thy word, in peace:
For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation,
Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people,
A light to lighten the Gentiles, and (to be) the glory of Thy people Israel.
