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

To render thanks unto the Lord

Representative Text

1 To render thanks unto our God
it is a comely thing;
and to your name, O God most high,
due praise aloud to sing.

2 Your loving-kindness to show forth
when shines the morning light;
and to declare your faithfulness
with pleasure every night,

3 upon a ten-stringed instrument,
upon the psaltery,
and on the harp with solemn sound,
and grave sweet melody.

4 For you, God, by your mighty works
have made my heart so glad;
and I will triumph in the works
which by your hands were made.

5 Those that within the house of God
are planted by your grace,
they shall grow up, and flourish all
within your holy place.
