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

125. The Church the Bride of Christ

1 O Royal Bride give heed,
And to my words attend;
For Christ the King forsake the world
And ev'ry former friend.

2 Thy beauty and thy grace
Shall then delight the King;
He only is the rightful Lord,
To Him thy worship bring.

3 To thee, since thou art His,
Great honor shall be shown;
The rich shall bring their gifts to thee
Thy glory they shall own.

4 Enthroned in royal state,
All glorious thou shalt dwell,
With garments fair, in-wrought with gold,
The Church He loveth well.

5 And they that honor thee
Shall in thy train attend;
And to the palace of the King
Shall joyfully ascend.

6 O King of royal race,
Thy sons of heavenly birth
Thou wilt endow with kingly gifts
As princes in the earth.

7 Thy name shall be proclaimed
Through all succeeding days,
And all the nations of the earth
Shall give Thee endless praise.
