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.

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."
