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

Praise thou, my soul, the Lord on high

Praise thou, my soul, the Lord on high

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Praise thou my soul, the Lord on high,
For daily strength and new supply;
For keeping me this day from ill,
For sending me his blessings still.

2 Forgive what I this day have done,
Cause me my follies to bemoan;
Defend me with thy mighty arm,
And keep me all this night from harm.

3 Let me with sweet and calm repose,
Now lying down my eye-lids close;
Let me awake to praise thy name,
And always sing thy glorious fame.

4 O keep my soul from dread and fear,
No pow'rs of darkness enter here;
But cause thy light of grace to shine
Into this dark'ned heart of mine.
