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.

626. Angels Gathering the Elect

1 Mighty messengers are running,
Shouting, “Flee from Babel’s doom!
For her plagues are swiftly coming,
Her destruction will be soon.”

Refrain:
Oh, behold the angels flying,
Sounding loud the trump of God;
Gath’ring home the sons of Zion,
Sanctified in Jesus’ blood.

2 Popish reign of bloody terror
Passed around—an awful night—
Now the cloudy day of error
Breaks away in evening light. [Refrain]

3 Hark! the shouts of joyful freedom,
’Tis the captives coming home;
From each name of sect confusion,
Made complete in Christ alone. [Refrain]

4 Out of Sodom’s desolation,
Out of mystic Babel’s fog;
In the light of full salvation,
We are coming home to God. [Refrain]

5 Heaven’s truth on earth is telling,
Light is streaming from above;
Saints have found in God their dwelling,
Sweetly bound in perfect love. [Refrain]
