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

10. Mount of Blessing

1 I’ve been up the Mount with my Lord today,
In blessed communion along the way;
Tho’ He is a King and of royal birth,
He deigns to life up the weak ones of earth.

O it is a glorious place to be,
And O what a wonder it is to me,
That my Saviour goes with me as I journey along,
And fills my soul with joy and with song.

2 He told of His own, His most gracious love,
And pleasures prepared for me above;
My heart was aglow with His blessed word,
Because of the presence of Christ my Lord. [Chorus]

3 He then brought me down by the waters still,
To the flow’ry vale where the songbirds trill;
In the pastures green I was led along,
Till my soul was filled with joy and with song. [Chorus]
