Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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.

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

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

68B. O Lord, Thou Hast Ascended

1 O Lord, thou hast ascended on high in might to reign;
captivity thou leadest a captive in thy train.
Rich gifts to thee are offered by men who did rebel,
who pray that now Jehovah, their God, with them may dwell.

2 Blest be the Lord who daily our heavy burden bears,
the God of our salvation, who for his people cares.
Our God is near to help us, our God is strong to save;
the Lord alone is able to ransom from the grave.

3 Sing unto God, ye nations, ye kingdoms of the earth;
Sing unto God, all people, and praise his matchless worth.
He rides in royal triumph upon the heav'ns abroad;
he speaks, the mountains tremble before the voice of God.

4 All glory, might, and honor ascribe to God on high;
his arm protects his people who on his pow'r rely.
Forth from thy holy dwelling thine awful glories shine;
thou strengthenest thy people; unending praise be thine.
