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

62. Sweeping Through the Gates

1 Who, who are these beside the chilly wave,
Just on the borders of the silent grave,
Shouting Jesus' power to save,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb

Chorus:
Sweeping through the gates to the New Jerusalem,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

2 These, these are they who in their youthful days
Found Jesus early and in wisdom's ways,
Proved the fulness of his grace,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]

3 These, these are they who in affliction's woes
Ever have found in Jesus calm repose,
Such as from a pure heart flows,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]

4 These, these are they who in the conflict dire
Bravely have stood amid the hottest fire;
Jesus now says, "Come up higher,"
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
[Chorus]
