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

77. The Sea of Glass

1 We stand upon the sea of glass,
That’s mingled with Jehovah’s fire;
Our robes are white, our feet as brass,
We stand upon the foe’s empire.

Refrain:
We stand redeemed upon the sea,
And sound aloud the harps of God;
All glory, praise, dear Lamb, to Thee,
For Thou hast saved us by Thy blood.

2 We bow no more to gods of men,
We shout the vict’ry o’er the beast;
Yea, o’er his mark and o’er his name
We overcome through Jesus Christ. [Refrain]

3 Upon this bright and glowing place
Of heaven’s truth and burning love,
Our souls in glory ever reign,
With all the ransomed host above. [Refrain]

4 In sweet and pure unbroken peace,
Upon the sea we glide along;
Our hearts so full of holy bliss
Flow out in everlasting song. [Refrain]
