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

296. The Angel Choir

1 I seem to hear an angel choir
Down from their shining home;
And in my heart their notes inspire
Sweet anthems from the throne.

Refrain:
Hark! o’er the vale sweet melodies
That echo in my soul;
Our great Redeemer’s holy praise
As mighty thunders roll.

2 Upon the mount of holiness,
We live in heaven’s view;
And o’er the shaded valley come
Their songs forever new. [Refrain]

3 Above, below, one family,
A thousand chords of love;
Now thrill my soul with melodies,
They chant in praise above. [Refrain]

4 I catch the pure celestial strain
That heaven wafts to me;
And then my happy spirit sings,
“Oh, glory, I am free!” [Refrain]

5 We echo back the sounds that float
Through Eden’s balmy air;
And heaven shouts to hear on earth
The songs they’re singing there. [Refrain]
