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

58. The Ivory Palaces

1 Out of the Ivory Palace he came,
That palace so wondrously fair,
Jesus, the Savior, with pow’r in his name,
And beauty past earthly compare.

Refrain:
Out of the palace of Iv’ry he came
With garments all perfumes, all perfumed with myrrh;
Both aloes and cassia were there to be seen,
A vision man’s soul, man’s soul to bestir.

2 All of his garments are scented with myrrh,
A perfume as lasting as time;
Fragrance to scatter where’er he doth stir,
Enduring, refining, sublime. [Refrain]

3 Sorrow and bitterness here for his cup,
And heavy the burdens he bore;
Stooping to suffer, thereby to life up
The tempted,—no matter how sore. [Refrain]

4 Cassia for healing, his garments contain,
A balm for all ills of the soul;
Sickness no longer,—no sorrow nor pain,
For Jesus makes “ev’ry white whole.” [Refrain]
