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

57. Conditions of Approach to God

1 The earth and the fullness with which it is stored,
The world and its dwellers belong to the Lord;
For He on the seas its foundations has laid,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed.

2 What man shall the hill of Jehovah ascend,
And who in the place of His presence attend?
The man of pure heart, and of hands without stain,
Who swears not to falsehood nor loves what is vain,
Who swears not to falsehood nor loves what is vain.

3 That man ever blest of Jehovah shall live.
The God of salvation shall righteousness give;
For this is the people, yea, this is the race,
The Israel true that are seeking His face,
The Israel true that are seeking His face.
