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

Praise ye the Lord ye Gentiles all (Sartorius)

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord, ye Gentiles all,
Praise Him with gladsome voices;
Praise Him all people, great and small,
In whom our soul rejoices;
For He has chosen us by grace
And turned to us His loving face
In Jesus Christ, our Savior.

2 Through Christ, our Lord, His love untold
Has wrought the world's salvation;
His Gospel, preached to young and old,
Has saved us from damnation.
Let ev'ry tongue this truth proclaim
And magnify His holy name
In joyful hallelujahs.

Professor Paul E. Kretzman led a group of Lutherans who left church fellowship with some Lutheran congregations in 1956 after he was charged with teaching error in class. He and his followers organized the Lutheran Churches of the Reformation. He wrote several Bible Commentaries and translated many hymns.
