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

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord! Timbrel and harp employ;
Lift the voice, sing, rejoice,
Publish His greatness and glory;
His service shall be fraught with an endless joy;
Day and night be thy delight,
Telling the wonderful story.

Great and glorious!
He is King forevermore!
Over all He is victorious,
We His holy name adore!
Reign, reign over us,
Keep us ever, leave us never,
Till “Thine be the glory”
Shall be the glad story
From shore to shore!

2 Praise ye the Lord! Worthy of praise is He;
Sun and rain, joy and pain,
Unto the earth He is sending;
He holdeth the stars, governs the angry sea;
Mountain peak and desert bleak
Tell of His glory unending. [Refrain]

3 Praise ye the Lord! Herald His name abroad!
Vale and hill, rock and rill,
Join in the song with creation;
Jehovah is He—there is no other God!
Worlds unknown are His alone;
Give Him your heart’s adoration. [Refrain]
