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.

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.
