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, ye hosts of heaven,
For to Him all praise belongeth;
Praise His name from morn till even,—
Praise ye the Lord.

Praise the name of Christ our Savior, King,
Praise His name, Praise His name;
Praise the Lord, O praise Him for His goodness,
Praise, O praise the Lord.

2 Sun and moon and stars, that brighten
All the heav’ns of heav’ns above us,
His command alone did lighten,—
Praise ye the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Earth with her ten thousand voices,
All His wondrous word fulfilling;
Each in His blest care rejoices,—
Praise ye the Lord. [Refrain]

4 Kings of earth His praises telling,
Young and old and all the people;
For His name is all excelling,—
Praise ye the Lord. [Refrain]
