We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

552. Come, We That Love the Lord

1 Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

2 Sing till we feel our hearts
Ascending with our tongues;
Sing till the love of sin departs
And grace inspires our songs.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

3 You pilgrims on the road
To Zion's city, sing;
Rejoice now in the Lamb of God,
On Christ, the eternal King.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

4 There shall each rapturous tongue
His endless praise proclaim,
And sing in sweeter notes the song
Of Moses and the Lamb.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.

5 Then let our songs abound
And let our tears be dry;
We're marching through Emmanuel's ground,
To fairer worlds on high.
Hosanna, Hosanna,
Rejoice, give thanks and sing.
