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,

602. Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power

1 Blessing and honor and glory and pow'r,
wisdom and and riches and strength evermore
give ye to him who our battle hath won,
whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne.

2 Into the heav'n of the heav'ns hath he gone,
sittest he now in the joy of the throne,
weareth he now of the kingdom the crown,
singeth he now the new song with his own.

3 Soundeth the heav'n of the heav'ns with his name,
ringeth the earth with his glory and fame,
ocean and mountains, stream, forest, and flow'r
echo his praises and tell of his pow'r.

3 Ever ascendeth the song and the joy;
ever descendeth the love from on high;
sing we the song of the Lamb that was slain,
dying in weakness and rising to reign.
