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

We praise the Lord, whose love is great

We praise the Lord, whose love is great

Representative Text

1 We praise the Lord, whose love is great;
His mercies we embrace;
We enter now, his temple gate,
And thank him for his grace.

2 This house for sacred use design'd,
We dedicate to God;
Here may the Lord of glory find,
A dwelling and abode.

3 Here we approach thy sacred courts,
With reverence and fear;
We will engage our best efforts,
To worship thee with pray'r.

4 Lord, may this be thy sanctuary,
Here with thy spirit dwell:
To us and or posterity,
The way to heav'n reveal.

5 Here Saviour, shew they gospel light,
And send thy blessings down;
Bring thy life-giving word to sight,
And make salvation known.

6 Here let thy blessed word be taught,
To us, and to our youth;
May thousands to that light be brought,
Where in they learn the truth.

7 Here let us hear the gospel sound,
Attend thy word with grace;
Call many wand'ring sinners round,
To come and fill this place.
