We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

We give thanks unto Thee, O God

Representative Text

1 We give thanks unto thee, O God;
We give thanks, and thy name
As being near at hand,
Thy wonders to proclaim.
2 When I receive th' assembly shall,
Judge uprightly I will
3 The earth melts and its dwellers all:
I stay its pillars still. Selah.

4 I said unto the foolish ones
Deal not so foolishly:
Also unto the wicked ones,
Lift not the horn on high;
5 Lift ye not up your horn on high;
With stifned neck speak not:
6 For from east, west, or wilderness,
Promotion is not got.

7 But God is judge: one he sets up,
Another down doth tread.
8 For in the Lord's hand is a cup,
The wine also is red:
Of mixture full, he pours there out;
But yet the wicked all
That are on earth, the dregs thereof
Wring out, and drink them shall.

9 But as concerning me, always
I will declare abroad:
And I will sing a psalm of praise
To him that's Jacob's God.
10 Of men ungodly all the horns
Also cut off will I;
But of the righteous ones the horns
Shall be exalted high.
