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

247. Joyful News

1 Jesus brought me to the mountain,
Where salvation echoes roll;
Living by the crystal fountain,
Which has made me fully whole.

Refrain:
Sound the tidings of salvation,
Let its echoes onward roll;
Praise the Lord, ye ransomed nation,
For He heals the wounded soul.
Hear the echoes roll,
’Tis the blood of Jesus
That has sanctified my soul.

2 Jesus brought me back to Eden,
Where the sun doth ever shine;
Precious, sweet, and pure redemption,
Hallelujah! It is mine. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the bliss of full salvation
Wakes the chords of melody,
In our hearts a sweet vibration
With all heaven’s minstrelsy. [Refrain]

4 Brother, when this life is ended,
On our pinions we shall rise,
Where the saints cannot be numbered,
In that world beyond the skies. [Refrain]

5 We shall reach the fields elysian,
When this mortal life is o’er;
Have a bright, immortal vision
On that ever-peaceful shore. [Refrain]
