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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

R61. Bless'd be the everlasting God

Bless’d be the everlasting God,
the Father of our Lord;
Be his abounding mercy praised,
his majesty adored.

When from the dead he raised his Son,
and called him to the sky,
He gave our souls a lively hope
that they should never die.

To an inheritance divine
he taught our hearts to rise;
’Tis uncorrupted, undefiled,
unfailing in the skies.

Saints by the pow’r of God are kept
till the salvation come:
We walk by faith as strangers here;
but Christ shall call us home.
