We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

CXXXII. Salvation, Righteousness, and Strength in CHRIST

1 JEHOVAH speaks! let Isr'el hear;
Let all the Earth rejoice and fear,
While GOD's eternal Son proclaims
His Sov'reign Honours and his Names:

2 "I am the Last, and I the First,
"The SAVIOUR-GOD, and GOD the Just;
"There's none beside pretends to shew
"Such Justice and Salvation too.

[3 "Ye that in Shades of Darkness dwell,
"Just on the Verge of Death and Hell,
"Look up to me from distant Lands;
"Light, Life, and Heav'n are in my Hands.

4 "I by my holy Name have sworn,
"Nor shall the Word in vain return;
"To me shall all Things bend the Knee,
"And ev'ry Tongue shall swear to me.]

5 "In me alone shall Men confess
"Lies all their Strength and Righteousness;
"But such as dare dispise my Name,
"I'll clothe them with eternal Shame.

6 "In me the LORD, shall all the Seed
"Of Isr'el from their Sins be freed;
"And by their shining Graces prove
"Their Int'rest in my pard'ning Love."
