Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Praise ye the Lord; his Servants praise, His sacred name adore

Praise ye the Lord; his Servants praise, His sacred name adore

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Praise ye the Lord; his servants, praise,
His sacred name adore.
2. Oh! blessed be Jehovah's name,
Both now, and evermore.
3. From the sun's rising, to it's fall,
The Lord's name's to be praised.
4. The Lord all nations rules, above
The heavens his glory's raised,

5. Who's like the Lord, our God, who sits
Enthroned above the sky
6. He condescends, on things in heaven,
And earth, to cast his eye.
7. The poor he raiseth from the dust,
From dunghills needy brings
8. Ranks them with princes, o'er his tribes,
Seats them on thrones of kings.

9. The barren he confines at home,
Her offspring to afford
A joyful mother's tender care.
Sing praises to the Lord.
