We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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. 

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.

Ye righteous in the Lord rejoice, It well becomes the good man's voice

Ye righteous in the Lord rejoice, It well becomes the good man's voice

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 You righteous, in the Lord rejoice;
It well becomes the good man's voice
To sing Jehovah's praise.
With harp and hymn of gladness sing,
Your gift of sweetest music bring,
To him a new song raise.

2 For upright is Jehovah's word;
And all the doings of the Lord
In faithfulness are wrought.
In justice and in judgment right
The Lord does ever take delight;
With goodness earth is fraught.

3 Jehovah's word the heav'ns has made,
And all the host of them arrayed
His breath has caused to be.
He rolls the waters heap on heap;
He stores away the mighty deep
In garners of the sea.

4 Let all the earth Jehovah fear,
Let all that dwell both far and near
In awe before him stand;
For, lo, he spoke and it was done,
And all his sovereign pow'r begun,
Stood fast at his command.

5 He makes the nations' counsels vain,
The plans the peoples would maintain
Are thwarted by his hand.
Jehovah's counsel stands secure,
His purposes of heart endure,
For evermore they stand.

6 O truly is the nation blessed
Whose God, before the world confessed,
Jehovah is alone;
And blessed the people are whom he
Has made his heritage to be,
And chosen for his own.

Trinity Hymnal 1990

GENEVAN 68 is usually attributed to Matthäus Greiter (b. Aichach, Bavaria, 1490; d. Strasbourg, France, 1550).
