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, 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

1 Here, O our Lord, I see you face to face,
here faith can touch and handle things unseen;
I will grasp with firmer hand your grace,
and all my weariness upon you lean.

2 Here I will feed upon the bread of God,
here drink with you the royal wine of heaven;
here I will lay aside each earthly load,
here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.

3 Mine is the sin, but yours the righteousness;
mine is the guilt, but yours the cleansing blood:
here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace;
your blood, your righteousness, O Lord, my God.

4 Too soon we rise, the symbols disappear;
the feast, though not the love, is past and done:
gone are the bread and wine, but you are here,
nearer than ever, still my shield and sun.

5 Feast after feast thus comes and passes by,
yet, passing, points to that glad feast above;
giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy,
the Lamb’s great bridal feast of bliss and love.
