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

The Lord praise, praise my soul the Lord

The Lord praise, praise my soul the Lord

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 The Lord praise, praise my soul the Lord.
2 So long as I do live,
I'll praise the Lord wilt that I am,
Praise to my God I'll give.
3 Trust not in princes, nor mens sons,
Who can no succour send:
4 His breath goes forth to's earth he turns,
His thoughts that day do end.

5 O bless'd is he who hath the God
Of Jacob for his aid:
Whose hopeful confidence upon
The Lord his God is staid.
6 Who heav'n, earth, sea, all in them made,
Who aye his truth makes good.
7 Who for the oppressed judgment doth,
Who gives the hungry food.

8 The Lord doth loose the prisoners,
The Lord opes eyes of blind:
The Lord doth raise the bowed down,
The Lord to th' just is kind.
9 The Lord saves strangers, widows he
And fatherless doth raise.
But he of them who wicked be,
Doth overthrow the ways.

10 The Lord shall reign for evermore;
Thy God, O Sion, he
To generations all shall reign:
O praise Jehovah ye.
