So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Ye boundless realms of joy

Full Text

1 Ye boundless realms of joy,
exalt your Maker's fame,
his praise your song employ
above the starry frame;
your voices raise,
ye cherubim
and seraphim,
to sing his praise.

2 Thou moon, that rulest the night,
and sun, that guidest the day,
ye glittering stars of light,
to him your homage pay.
His praise declare,
ye heavens above,
and clouds that move
in liquid air.

3 Let them adore the Lord,
and praise his holy name,
by whose almighty Word
they all from nothing came;
and all shall last
from changes free;
his firm decree
stands ever fast.

4 United zeal be shown
his wondrous fame to raise,
whose glorious name alone
deserves our endless praise;
earth's utmost ends
his power obey;
his glorious sway
the sky transcends.
