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.

Representative Text

1 The praises of thy wonders, Lord,
the heavens shall express;
and in the congregation
of saints thy faithfulness.

2 Thou hast an arm that's full of pow'r;
thy hand is great in might;
and thy right hand exceedingly
exalted is in height.

3 Justice and judgment of thy throne
are made the dwelling place;
mercy, accompanied with truth,
shall go before thy face.

4 O greatly blessed the people are
the joyful sound that know;
in brightness of thy face, O Lord,
they ever on shall go.

5 Because the glory of their strength
doth only stand in thee;
and in thy favor shall our horn
and pow'r exalted be.

6 For God is our defense; and he
to us doth safety bring:
the Holy One of Israel
is our almighty King.
