Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

543. Amidst Us Our Beloved Stands

1 Amidst us our Belovèd stands,
and bids us view his piercèd hands;
points to the wounded feet and side,
blest emblems of the Crucified.

2 When at his table sits the Lord,
what gen'rous food adorns his board;
when Jesus deigns his guests to meet,
the wine how rich, the bread how sweet!

3 If now, with eyes defiled and dim,
we see the signs, but see not him;
O may His love the scales displace,
and bid us see him face to face!

4 Thou glorious Bridegroom of our hearts,
thy present smile a heav’n imparts!
O lift the veil, if veil there be,
let ev'ry saint your glory see!
