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

140. We gather, we gather, dear Jesus, to bring

1 We gather, we gather, dear Jesus, to bring
The breathings of love 'mid the blossoms of spring;
Our Maker, Redeemer, we gratefully raise
Our hearts and our voices in singing Thy praise.

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hosanna in the highest!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hosanna our God!

2 When stooping to earth from the brightness of heaven,
Thy blood for our ransom so freely was given,
Thou cheerfully listened while children adored,
With joyful hosannas, the blest of the Lord. [Chorus]

3 Those arms, which embraced little children of old,
Still love to encircle the lambs of the fold,
That grace which inviteth the wandering home,
Hath never forbidden the youngest to come. [Chorus]

4 Hosanna! Hosanna! Great Teacher, we raise
Our hearts and our voices in singing Thy praise
For precept and promise so graciously given,
For blessings of earth, and for glories of heaven. [Chorus]
