Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Ye People, clap your Hands,
And with glad Voices sing;
No Force the Pow'r withstands
Of GOD, the mighty King.
For us in Battle he shall fight,
And Nations round to quell,
And fix where we must dwell,
The Pride of Jacob, his Delight.

2 God is gone up our King,
With Shouts and Trumpets sound:
To him loud Praises sing,
And let the Song go round;
For him, who all the World commands,
Your utmost Skill be shewn;
Who from his righteous Throne,
Extends his Sway o'er Heathen Lands.

3 The Princes of our Tribes,
Are to the People join'd,
Who Abra'ams GOD adore,
With pure and upright Mind:
They, far from hence to serve him came,
And he did Succour send,
His People to defend:
For great and glorious is his Name.
