We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

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

439. Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious!

1 Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious:
See the Man of Sorrows now,
from the fight returned victorious --
every knee to him shall bow.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
crowns become the Victor's brow.

2 Crown the Saviour, angels, crown him!
Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
in the seat of power enthrone him,
while the vault of heaven rings.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
crown the Savior King of kings.

3 Sinners in derision crowned jim,
mocked the dying Saviour's claim;
saints and angels crowd around him,
own his title, praise his name.
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
spread abroad the Victor's fame.

4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation!
hark, those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station --
Oh, what joy the sight affords!
Crown him! crown him! crown him! crown him!
King of kings, and Lord of lords!
