We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord; for it is good
Praise to our God to sing;
For it is pleasant, and to praise
It is a comely thing.

Chorus:
Praise the Lord, it is good
Praise to our God to sing:
For it is pleasant, and to praise
It is a comely thing.

2 Those that are broken in their heart,
And troubled in their minds,
He healeth, and their painful wounds
He tenderly upbinds. [Chorus]

3 He counts the number of the stars;
He names them ev'ry one:
Our Lord is great, and of great pow'r,
His wisdom search can none. [Chorus]
