Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Sing to the Lord, to God our Father,
Speak of his goodness from day to day;
Make known his glory, tell of his wisdom,
Sing how his kindness illumines our way.

Refrain:
Come with rejoicing, come with rejoicing,
Come with rejoicing, praise ye the Lord;
Sing hallelujah, sing hallelujah,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord.

2 Sing to the Lord, our great Redeemer,
Sing he is risen, with saving might;
Strong to deliver, praise him forever,
Sing his salvation, his kingdom of light. [Refrain]

3 Sing to the Lord, the Holy Spirit,
Spirit of truth, our abiding friend;
Comforter holy, Spirit of guidance,
Welcome him truly, let praises ascend. [Refrain]

4 Sing to the Lord, to God our Father,
Sing to our Saviour, eternal Son;
Sing to the Spirit, honor and worship,
Power and dominion, the Three in One. [Refrain]
