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 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 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,
Harry Plantinga

94. Let all human flesh be silent

Let all human flesh be silent,
Stand in awe and holy fear,
Cast all earthly thought behind it,
For the King of heaven is near.

Lo, He cometh, King Eternal,
Christ our God, He comes to die;
And His flesh as food He giveth,
To the Faithful who draw nigh.

Hosts angelic go before Him,
Decked in dazzling pomp of state,
Cherub, seraph, winged and watchful,
Heavenly Prince, and Potentate.

And they bow in lowly worship
'Neath the covering of their wings,
While they chant thrice 'Alleluia,
To the mighty King of kings,
