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,

105. Rise, Children of the Kingdom

1 Rise, children of the kingdom!
The King is drawing nigh.
Arise, and hail with gladness
The Ruler from on high.
Ye Christians, hasten forth!
Your praise and homage bring Him
and glad Hosannas sing Him;
Naught else your love is worth.

2 Arise, ye drooping mourners!
The King is very near.
Away with grief and sorrow,
For lo! your help is here.
Behold, in many a place--
O blessed consolation--
We find Him, our salvation,
In His pure means of grace.

3 Arise, ye much afflicted!
The King is not afar.
Rejoice, ye long dejected!
Behold the Morning Star.
The Lord will give you joy,
Though troubles now distress you,
With comfort He will bless you,
E'en death He will destroy.

4 Arise, ye poor and needy!
The King provides for you.
He comes with succor speedy,
With mercy ever new.
Receive your gracious King,
The giver of all blessing.
Hail Him, His name confessing,
And glad Hosannas sing.

5 O rich the gifts Thou bring'st us,
Thyself made poor and weak;
O love beyond expression,
That thus can sinners seek!
For this, O Lord, will we
Our joyous tribute bring Thee,
And glad Hosannas sing Thee,
And ever grateful be.
