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.

29. Round the Throne of Glory

1 Round the throne of glory,
Circling seraphim
Raise their hallowed voices
In the sacred hymn.
True their notes are blended,
Loud the strains they raise;
Thro' the courts eternal
Rolls the song of praise:

Holy, Holy, Holy,
Blessed Trinity!
Heav'n and earth are filled
With Thy Majesty!

2 Earth hath many voices
Blended with the sea,
Pealing forth the anthem
Of their praise to Thee;
Night and day it rises,
Mingling with the song
Which these sacred singers
Endlessly prolong. [Refrain]

3 One our heav'nly Father,
Round whose throne we meet,
One our great Redeemer,
One our Paraclete;
Bound in living union,
By one holy tie,
In Thy sacred presence,
Triune God, we cry. [Refrain]

4 Raise the hymn of triumph,
Heav'n and earth and sea;
Roll your thousand voices
Forth in harmony:
Voices young and aged,
Voices grand in song,
Blend them, singers holy;
Loud the strain prolong. [Refrain]
