Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

56. Babel's Fallen

1 Babel’s walls, so long obscuring
All the ways of truth and right,
Crumble now before the shining
Of the glorious evening light.

Babel’s fallen, hallelujah!
Hear the saints in chorus sing;
From the summit of Mount Zion,
Hear their glad hosannas ring.

2 Now are Zion’s walls erected,
And her watchmen fear the Lord;
From the heights of full salvation
Loud proclaim His holy word. [Refrain]

3 Oft they told us that no mortal
Could enjoy this perfect peace;
But we’ve found a full fruition,
And the year of sweet release. [Refrain]

4 Hail the day of heav’nly freedom!
Though so long has been the night,
Brighter seems the radiant splendor
As we reach the evening light. [Refrain]
