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.

With joyful heart your praises bring

Representative Text

1 With joyful heart your praises bring
To God, the fount of blessing;
His everlasting goodness sing,
His holy name confessing;
Our God let all creation bless;
He is our aid in all distress:
O bless His Name forever.

2 Praise God, who to the cross and grave
Hath sent His Son from heaven;
His death that did the guilty save,
Eternal life hath given.
He hath redeemed our souls from hell;
Now peace for God with men doth dwell:
O bless His Name forever!

3 Praise God, who by His Spirit's light
To faith our souls awaketh:
Our souls with gifts of grace and might,
He strong and steadfast maketh.
His Word doth light our heavenward way;
His grace inclines us to obey:
O bless His Name forever!

4 Ye mighty seraphim, your praise
Still to the Lord be bringing,
Let all in heaven their voices raise;
Let earth break forth in singing.
Whate'er hath breath shall Him adore,
Him first, Him last, Him evermore:
O bless His Name forever!
