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 king's praise

Representative Text

1 Unto the King of our salvation
Let praise arise with exultation;
His name above all other names shall be our joy and song.
Unworthy, yet his bounty feeds us;
Ungrateful, yet he gently leads us;
Rebellious, yet he guides and keep us all the way along.

With song we come before him,
And, grateful, our hearts adore him;
His praise, in love ascending,
From voices together blending,
Thro’out the world shall ring—
Hosanna to our King!
Rock, hill, and vale and mountain,
Sea, river, and brook and fountain,
Shall join in the mighty chorus
To him whose love supreme is o’er us,
Till earth, united, shall extol,
And crown him Lord of all.

2 His love and mercy never faileth;
His grace for ev’ry need availeth;
We in his everlasting arms of love in peace abide.
The cloud by day he shows before us,
The fire by night he kindles o’er us,
While at his word the mountains tremble, and the seas divide. [Refrain]

3 The way to life he hath appointed
Is thro’ the Lord, our Great Anointed;
Not one shall ever go astray who follows his command.
Hosanna to his name forever,
He will forsake, or leave us, never!
His word for ages hath endured, and shall forever stand. [Refrain]
