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.

Representative Text

1 Sing, O earth to the King most high,
For His mercy and love are eternal;
Chant His praise till the stars reply
With the saints in the kingdom supernal;
Sing ye nations, the King proclaim,
Christ, the Savior, extol and adore;
Over and over, repeat His name;
Praises increasing outpour.

Sing His praise,
Loud your anthems raise,
For our Lord once slain is alive again,
And He sits at the Father’s right hand;
He is King and will ever reign
His goodness and mercy endureth forever,
Oh, praise His name.

2 Laud His name with enraptured songs,
More than worthy is He of our praises,
Endless glory to Him belongs,
For the humble and fallen He raises;
He came down from His throne above,
Bled and died to redeem us from sin;
Over and over, extol His love,
Praise ye His glorious name. [Refrain]

3 Come ye people, before Him fall,
For in majesty none is above Him,
Priceless blessings He gives to all,
Who believe Him, and trust Him, and love Him;
Give your heart to this matchless King,
Who is saving and lifting the race;
Over and over, His praises sing,
Rest in the arms of His grace. [Refrain]
