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

7. Come, Thou Almighty King

Come, thou almighty King,
Help us thy name to sing,
Help us to praise!
Father all glorious,
O'er all victorious.
Come, and reign over us,
Ancient of Days.

Come, thou all gracious Lord,
By heaven and earth adored,
Our prayer attend,
Come, and thy people bless,
Give thy good word success.
Spirit of holiness,
On us descend.

Never from us depart,
Rule thou in every heart,
Hence, evermore:
Thy sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore!
