Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Psalm 111: Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart

Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart, I will God's praise declare

Published in 5 hymnals

Full Text

1 Praise ye the Lord: with my whole heart
I will God’s praise declare,
Where the assemblies of the just
and congregations are.

2 The whole works of the Lord our God
are great above all measure,
Sought out they are of ev’ry one
that doth therein take pleasure.

3 His work most honourable is,
most glorious and pure,
And his untainted righteousness
for ever doth endure.

4 His works most wonderful he hath
made to be thought upon:
The Lord is gracious, and he is
full of compassion.

5 He giveth meat unto all those
that truly do him fear;
And evermore his covenant
he in his mind will bear.

6 He did the power of his works
unto his people show,
When he the heathen’s heritage
upon them did bestow.

7 His handy-works are truth and right;
all his commands are sure:
8 And, done in truth and uprightness,
they evermore endure.

9 He sent redemption to his folk;
his covenant for aye
He did command: holy his name
and rev’rend is alway.

10 Wisdom’s beginning is God’s fear:
good understanding they
Have all that his commands fulfill:
his praise endures for aye.
