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

When God Delivered Israel

Full Text

1 When God delivered Israel
From bondage long ago,
They thought that they were dreaming,
but soon they turned to laughing
And sang the song of joy,
And sang the song of joy.

2 The godless nations round them
Could not deny that power;
They cried, "O see this marvel!"
"God's work," replied the people,
And so they sang for joy,
And so they sang for joy.

3 O God, restore our nation;
Come, irrigate dry souls,
That those who sow in sadness
May reap their sheaves with gladness
And sing the song of joy,
And sing the song of joy.
