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.
Harry Plantinga

There is a river pure and bright

Author: James Montgomery Hymnal: Sacred Poems and Hymns #229 (1854) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Hymnal Title: Sacred Poems and Hymns Lyrics: There is a river pure and bright, Whose streams make glad the heavenly plains, Where, in eternity of light, The City of our God remains. Built by the word of His command, With His unclouded presence blest, Firm as His throne, the bulwarks stand; There is our home, our hope, our rest. 228 Thither let fervent faith aspire; Our treasure and our heart be there: Oh! for a seraph's wing of fire! No,--on the mightier wings of prayer,-- We reach at once that last retreat, And, ranged among the ransom'd throng, Fall with the elders at His feet, Whose Name alone inspires their song. Ah! soon, how soon! our spirits droop; Unwont the air of heaven to breathe; Yet God, in very deed, will stoop, And dwell Himself with men beneath. Come to thy living temples, then, As in the ancient times appear; Let earth be Paradise again, And man, O God! thine image here. Scripture: Psalm 46 Languages: English
