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.

Praise ye the Lord, who reigns above, Fixed on his throne of truth and love

Praise ye the Lord, who reigns above, Fixed on his throne of truth and love

Published in 21 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord, who reigns above,
Fix'd on his throne of truth and love:
Behold the finger of his pow'r
Contemplate, wonder, and adore.

2 When man, debas'd and guilty man,
From crime to crime with madness ran;
Well might his arm its thunders launch,
And blast th' ungrateful, root and branch.

3 But elemency with justice strove,
To save the people of his love,
"Go, my beloved Son!" he cried,
"Be thou their Saviour, thou their guide."

4 The eastern star with glory streams;
It comes, with healing on its beams.
Dark mists of error flee away,
And Judah hails the rising day.

5 His sacred memory we bless,
Whole holy gospel we profess;
And praise that great almighty name,
From whom such light and favour came.
