Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

9396. The Lord Unto My Lord Thus Spake

1 The Lord unto my Lord thus spake:
"Till I Thy foes Thy footstool make,
Sit Thou in state at My right hand;
Supreme in Zion Thou shalt be,
And all Thy proud opposers see
Subjected to Thy just command."

2 "Thee, in Thy power’s triumphant day,
The willing people shall obey;
And, when Thy rising beams they view,
Shall all (redeemed from error’s night)
Appear more numerous and bright
Than crystal drops of morning dew."

3 The Lord hath sworn, nor sworn in vain,
That, like Melchizedek’s, Thy reign
And priesthood shall no period see;
Anointed Prince! Thou, bending low,
Shalt drink where darkest torrents flow,
Then raise Thy head in victory!
