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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 The Lord is ever gracious,
To those who do His will;
His goodness and His mercy
Their steps will follow still.

Then praise His name forever,
His wondrous love proclaim;
Let all the people praise Him,
And magnify His name.

2 He sends His benedictions
With each returning day;
He gives us joy and gladness,
And takes our sins away. [Refrain]

3 Our cup is filled with blessings,
And overflows with love;
He draws us by His spirit
To yon bright home above. [Refrain]
