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

1 Christ, enthroned in heavenly splendor,
first begotten from the dead,
You alone, our strong defender,
now lift up your people’s head.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ, our true and living Bread,
Christ, our true and living Bread.

2 Here our humblest homage pay we,
here in loving reference bow;
Here for faith’s discernment pray we,
lest we fail to know you now.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
You are here, we ask not how,
You are here, we ask not how.

3 Paschal Lamb, your offering finished
once for all when you were slain,
In its fullness undiminished
shall forevermore remain.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Cleansing hearts from every stain.
Cleansing hearts from every stain.

4 Life imparting heavenly manna,
stricken rock with streaming side,
Heaven and earth with loud hosanna
worship you, the Lamb who died,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Risen, ascended, glorified!
Risen, ascended, glorified!
