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

Refrain:
We praise Thee, we bless Thee!
Thou, who only art divine;
No name is worthy such homage as Thine;
Our hearted adoration forever we will gladly bring
To Thee, our Redeemer, Creator, and King.

1 To meet the glad echoes our voices we raise,
And join with our souls in the anthem of praise;
We praise Thee, we bless Thee!
Thou, who only art divine,
For no name is worthy such homage as Thine.
With angels in glory,
We herald the story,
Glad tidings of joy and peace
Through our Saviour and King. [Refrain]

2 For mercies unnumbered, for tenderest care,
For blessings Thy children so bounteously share;
We praise Thee, we bless Thee!
Thou, who only art divine,
For no name is worthy such homage as Thine.
Now joyfully blending,
With rapture ascending,
Our tribute of praise to Thee,
Blessed Saviour and King. [Refrain]

3 For all the sweet promises faithfully giv’n,
For all the bright hopes that look forward to heaven:
We praise Thee, we bless Thee!
Thou, who only art divine,
For no name is worthy such homage as Thine.
Our hearts warmly glowing,
With melody flowing,
All glory and praise to Thee,
Blessed Saviour and King. [Refrain]

4 Our voices in chorus exultingly rise,
To join with the angel whose songs fill the skies:
We praise Thee, we bless Thee!
Thou, who only art divine,
For no name is worthy such homage as Thine.
Y angels in glory,
Still herald the story,
Sing praises forevermore
To our Saviour and King. [Refrain]

Coda:
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, amen,
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, amen,
Hallelujah, amen, amen.
