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.

Representative Text

1 Praise ye Jehovah, praise the Lord most holy,
Who cheers the contrite, girds with strength the weak;
Praise Him who will with glory crown the lowly,
And with salvation beautify the meek.

2 Praise ye the Lord for all His loving kindness,
And all the tender mercies He hath shown;
Praise Him who pardons all our sin and blindness,
And calls us sons, and takes us for His own.

3 Praise ye Jehovah, source of every blessing;
Before His gifts earth’s richest boons are dim;
Resting in Him, His peace and joy possessing,
All things are ours, for we have all in Him.

4 Praise ye the Father, God the Lor, who gave us,
With full and perfect love, His only Son;
Praise ye the Son who died Himself to save us;
Praise ye the Spirit, praise the Three in One!

Campbell, Margaret, Lady Cockburn, née Malcolm, eldest daughter of Sir John Malcolm, G.C.B., married, June 20, 1827, to Sir Alexander Thomas Cockburn-Campbell, Bart, (one of the founders of the Plymouth Brethren in England), and died at Alphington, near Exeter, Feb. 6, 1811. Her hymns were printed in lithograph from her manuscript for private circulation. In the Plymouth Brethren Psalms & Hymns, Lond., Walther, 1842, some of these hymns were given, and thus came into common use. The best known is, "Praise ye Jehovah, praise the Lord most holy." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
