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.

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.
