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

6. Like Miriam Who Danced to Praise

Like Miriam who danced to praise
the parting of the sea,
and David, who before the ark,
danced on with ecstasy,
God, pour your spirit into us,
fill us with joy as well,
that we may also join the dance
and all your praises tell.

Like prophets dancing to your tune
before a royal throne,
or marching to a freedom song
or standing firm alone,
God, send us visions of your will,
reveal to us your Word,
that we may bravely dance our role
and speak what we have heard.

Like those who danced with Jesus Christ,
until his life was done,
then carried on the dance of love
that he had just begun,
God, fill us with their loyalty
and passion for their Friend,
that we may follow in their steps
to joy that has no end.
