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.
Harry Plantinga

3221. Jerusalem, Thou City Bright

1. Jerusalem, thou city bright
From Heav’n to earth descending,
How wondrously their holy light
Thy precious stones are blending.

Refrain
O city fair, O city blest,
All joy to mortals bringing,
Who would not raise his voice in praise
And thy dear name be singing!

2. O gates of pearl,
O streets of gold,
O river ever flowing
Where leads the Shepherd to the fold
The flock their Savior knowing. [Refrain]

3. Shine, holy light, within our hearts
All evil shade dispelling,
That we ne’er from Thy way depart,
Which leads to that blest dwelling. [Refrain]
