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.

Your maker's praise, ye righteous souls, proclaim

Your maker's praise, ye righteous souls, proclaim

Author: Thomas Cradock
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Your maker's praise, ye righteous souls, proclaim;
All ye his servants, hymn his holy name;
2 The name of your tremendous Lord adore,
That all to endless time may hail his pow'r;
2 From morn to night, while glads the sun the day,
Let man the mercies of his God display;
4 His God, above the nations seated high,
High in the heav'ns, enthron'd in majesty.
5 What fancied god can with our God compare?
Whose throne's supported by the azure air;
6 Whose eye, all-seeing, heav'n and earth pervades,
7 Who in their deep distress the wretched aids;
8 The poor who raises from his low estate,
And, equal with proud princes, makes him great;
9 Who gives the sterile womb a fruitful birth;
With joy the matron brings her issue forth;
With joy she views her progeny around;
The praises of your God, ye just, resound.
