Hymnary Friends,

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Praise to God, the great Creator, Bounteous source of every joy

Praise to God, the great Creator, Bounteous source of every joy

Representative Text

1 Praise to God, the great Creator,
Bounteous source of all our joy!
He whose hand upholds all nature,
He whose nod can all destroy.
Saints, with pious zeal attending,
Now the grateful tribute raise;
Solemn songs to heav'n ascending,
Join the universal praise.

2 Round his awful footstool kneeling,
Lowly bend with contrite souls;
Here, his milder grace revealing,
Here his wrath no thunder rolls.
Lo, the sacred page before us
Bears the cov'nant of his love;
Full of mercy to restore us,
Mercy beaming from above.

3 Ev'ry secret fault confessing,
Deed unrighteous, thought of sin,
Seize, O seize the proffer'd blessing,
Grace from God and peace within.
Heart and voice with rapture swelling,
Still the song of glory raise;
On the theme of immortal dwelling,
Join the universal praise.
