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, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

The praises of the Lord, our God

The praises of the Lord, our God

Published in 5 hymnals

Full Text

1 The praises of the Lord our God,
and his almighty strength,
the wondrous works that he hath done,
we will show forth at length.

2 His testimony and his law
in Israel he did place,
and charged our forebears it to show
to their succeeding race;

3 That so the race which was to come
might learn and know them well;
and generations yet unborn
might their own children tell:

4 That they might set their hope in God,
and not forget his ways,
but hold in mind his mighty works
and keep his laws always.
