Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

Refrain:
In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us.

1 Blessed are you, Lord, the God of Israel:
you have come to your people and set them free.

2 You have raised up for us a mighty Savior,
born of the house of your servant David. [Refrain]

3 Through your holy prophets, you promised of old
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us,

4 to show mercy to our forebears
and to remember your holy covenant. [Refrain]

5 This was the oath you swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hands of our enemies:

7 And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare the way,

8 to give God's people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins. [Refrain]

9 In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

10 to shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace. [Refrain]
