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.

I.CXLVIII. With cheerful Voice I sing

[1 With chearful Voice I sing
The Titles of my Lord,
And borrow all the Names
Of Honour from his Word,
Nature and Art
Can ne'er supply
Sufficient Forms
Of Majesty.

2 In Jesus we behold
His Father's glorious Face,
Shining for ever bright,
With mild and lovely Rays:
Th' Eternal God's
Eternal Son
Inherits and
Partakes the Throne.]

3 The Sov'reign King of Kings,
The Lord of Lords most high,
Writes his own Name upon
His Garment and his Thigh.
His Name is call'd
The Word of God,
He rules the Earth
With iron Rod.

4 Where Promises and Grace
Can neither melt nor move,
The angry Lamb resents
The Inj'ries of his Love;
Awakes his Wrath
Without Delay,
As Lions roar,
And tear the Prey.

5 But when for Works of Peace
The great Redeemer comes,
What gentle Characters,
What Titles he assumes?
Light of the World,
And Life of Men;
Nor will he bear
Those Names in vain.

6 Immense Compassion reigns
In our Immanuel's Heart,
When he descends to act
A Mediator's Part.
He is a Friend,
And Brother too;
Divinely kind,
Divinely true.

7 At length the Lord the Judge
His awful Throne ascends,
And drives the Rebels far
From Favourites and Friends.
Then shall the Saints
Completely prove
The Heights and Depths
Of all his Love.
