Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

57. O Bride of Christ, Rejoice

1 O bride of Christ, rejoice;
Exultant raise thy voice
To hail the day of glory
Foretold in sacred story.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

2 Let shouts of gladness rise
Triumphant to the skies.
Now comes the King most glorious
To reign o’er all victorious.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

3 He wears no kingly crown,
Yet as a King is known;
Tho' not arrayed in splendor,
He still makes death surrender.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

4 The weak and timid find
How meek He is and kind;
To them He gives a treasure
Of bliss beyond all measure.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

5 Thy heart now open wide,
Bid Christ with thee abide.
He graciously will hear thee
And be forever near thee.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

6 Then go thy Lord to meet;
Strew palm-leaves at His feet;
Thy garments spread before Him
And honor and adore Him.
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

7 E’en babes with one accord
With thee shall praise the Lord,
And every Gentile nation
Respond with exultation:
Hosanna, praise and glory!
Our King, we bow before Thee.

Amen.
