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.

Representative Text

1. Shout to Jehovah all the Earth;
2. Serve him with chearful, Heart and Voice;
Approach his House with sacred Mirth,
Before him triumph, and rejoice.
3. Know that Jehovah's God alone,
!ho us and all did Being give;
We are his People, not our own,
The Sheep that on his Pastures live.

4. Enter his Gates with thankful Joy,
And, in his courts, his Praise proclaim;
Your grateful Songs, in Thanks employ,
And ever bless his holy Name.
5. Because Jehovah he is good,
His Mercy is forever sure;
His Truth, thro' Ages past, has stood,
And shall, thro' ev'ry Age, endure.
