Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

5Brethren, we have met to worship
6aHark! listen to the trumpeters
6bThe army now is on parade
7Precious promise God hath given
8aWhen I can read my title clear
8bLord, what a wretched land is this
9aFar from the utmost verge of day
9bAfflictions, though they seem severe
11aSee in the vineyard of the Lord
11bSaviour, visit Thy plantation
12aI saw beyond the tomb
12bAnd must this body die
13aThro' sorrow's night and danger's path, amid the deepening gloom
13bHow lost was my condition
15bThere is a land of pure delight
16I would not live alway, I ask not to stay
17aWhile life prolongs its precious light
17bDark was the night, and cold the ground
18At first when Jesus found me
19When the whole world is against you
20aOh, where are you running sinner
20bAnd am I born to die
21Mother died ashouting
22aMy hope is built on nothing less, I'll never turn back no more
22bOh, for an overcoming faith
23Awakened by Sinai's awful sound
24aIf you get there before I do, I'm going to meet you
24bOh! Who will come and go with me
25When the warfare first began
26Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
27Afflictions, though they seem severe
28We have crossed the river of Jordan
29aWith thanksgiving songs we greet you
29bJerusalem the golden
31aO, young soldiers, are you wearyText Info
31bOne day when I was weary
32Farewell, my dear brethren, the time is at hand
33aSinners, this solemn truth regard
33bJesus did just what He said
34I am going to drink out the spring that never runs dry
35aFor all you see me go along so
35bI've left the tents of wickedness
36aWe're kneeling at the mercy seat, the mercy seat
36bTell me the old, old story of unseen things above
37There is a fountain filled with blood
38Come, ye that love the Lord indeed
39aAlas! and did my Saviour bleed?
39bCome, thou Fount of every blessing
40Hark! the voice of Jesus crying
41Say, brother, will you meet me
42aWhen I can read my title clear
42bO, see the Baptist preacher
43Thro' sorrow's night and danger's path, I've been waiting;--have you come
44I'll praise my Maker with my breath
45aStop a little while before I go
45bAmazing grace! how sweet the sound
46There is a land of pure delight
47aCome, ye reapers, poor and needy
47bWe are often tossed and driven
48I've seen the lightening flashing
49Through sorrow's night, and danger's path
50I dreamed that the great judgment morning
51There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus
52aShall we meet beyond the river
52bDown at the cross where my Saviour died
53Prayer is the soul's sincere desire
54aSow in the morn thy seed
54bWhen the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more
55When my life work is ended, and I cross the swelling tide
