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

579. Holy Fellowship

1 Sweet fellowship, thy crystal tide,
Flows joyful in our souls;
Baptized in one, naught can divide,
While heav’nly peace controls.

Refrain:
O brethren, how our spirits blend
In fellowship so dear;
Though sundered far by God’s command,
We feel you still so near.

2 God over all, and through us all,
In floods of blissful light,
Is fellowship in every soul
That’s pure in heaven’s sight. [Refrain]

3 O fellowship, my brethren dear,
In bonds of perfect love;
How blest the seal of union here
With all the saints above! [Refrain]

4 This fellowship with Father, Son,
And all who love the Lord,
Is heaven here on earth begun,
’Tis Paradise restored. [Refrain]
