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 Sing, ev’ry heart, glad praise to God on high;
Let joyous anthems cleave the arching sky;
All thro’ the days so full of joy and light;
Worship the King who reigns in heaven’s height.

Praise him with songs of rejoicing,
Praise him, the Father above,
Joining with earth’s happy voices,
Praising the God of our love.

2 Sing, ev’ry heart, in one unbroken strain;
Send forth the song o’er mountain, hill and plain;
Bring to the Lord the glory due his name,
Let all the earth his majesty proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Sing, ev’ry heart, this happy Sabbath day,
Praise and adore his holy name alway;
Let all unite their tribute glad to bring,
To him be glory evermore, our King. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
