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.

770. Come Ye that Love the Lord

1 Come ye that love the Lord,
And let your joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord
Join in a song with sweet accord
While ye surround the throne,
While ye surround the throne,
While ye surround the throne.

2 Let those refuse to sing,
Who never knew our God;
But children of the heav'nly King,
But children of the heav'nly King,
Shall speak their joys abroad,
Shall speak their joys abroad,
Shall speak their joys abroad.

3 This aweful God is ours,
Our Father and our Love;
He will send down His heav'nly pow'rs,
He will send down His heav'nly pow'rs
To carry us above,
To carry us above,
To carry us above.

4 Then let our songs abound,
And ev'ry tear be dry;
We're marching through Immanuel's ground,
We're marching through Immanuel's ground
To fairer worlds on High,
To fairer worlds on high,
To fairer worlds on high.

Amen.
