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.

Should we not thank and praise our God

Should we not thank and praise our God

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Should we not thank and praise our God?
Who heard our humble cry,
Who has withdrawn his chast'ning rod,
And laid his threat'nings by.

2 The blessed rain the Lord hath sent,
Reviv'd or scorching earth,
And put an end to our complaint:
And fears of fatal dearth.

3 Due praise to God let us return,
For the refreshing rain.
We who like as our earth did mourn,
Are now reviv'd again.

4 Eternal praise to God we give,
In whose bless'd hands we are;
Who still provides for us to live,
Unworthy as we are.

5 Had heav'n the rain from us withheld,
What would our case have been?
A curse had rested on our fields:
Our just reward for sin.

6 Thanks be to God, it was his will
In mercy us to spare,
And we enjoy his blessings still,
Unworthy as we are.
