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.

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

Delights in Public Worship

Author: Dr. Watts Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #XXI (1790) Topics: At the Opening of Public Worship First Line: Welcome sweet day of rest Lyrics: 1 Welcome sweet day of rest That saw the Lord arise; Welcome to this reviving breast, And these rejoicing eyes! 2 The King Himself comes near, And feasts his saints to-day; Here may we sit, and see him here, And love, and praise, and pray. 3 One day amidst the place Where my dear God hath been, Is sweeter than ten thousand days Of pleasurable sin. 4 My willing soul would stay In such a frame as this, And sit and sing herself away To everlasting bliss.

Reverential Worship

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #IV (1790) Topics: At the Opening of Public Worship First Line: With rev'rence let the saints appear Lyrics: 1 With rev'rence let the saints appear, And bow before the Lord, His high commands with rev'rence hear, And tremble at his word. 2 How terrible thy glories be! How bright thine armies shine! Where is the pow'r that vies for thee? Or truth compar'd with thine? 3 The northern pole and southern rest On thy supporting hand, Darkness and day, from east to west Move round at thy command. 4 Thy words the raging winds controul, And rule the boist'rous deep; Thou mak'st the sleeping billows roll, The rolling billows sleep. 5 Heav'n, earth, and air, and sea, are thine, And the dark world of hell; How did thine arm in vengeance shine When Egypt durst rebel!

Make ev'ry path of duty straight, And plain before my face. Scripture: Psalm 5 Languages: English

Hymnal: A Selection of Psalms and Hymns #XIX (1790) Topics: At the Opening of Public Worship First Line: Before JEHOVAH's awful throne Lyrics: 1 Before JEHOVAH's awful throne, Ye nations, bow with sacred joy; Know that the Lord is God alone; He can create and he destroy. 2 His sov'reign pow'r without our aid, Made us of clay, and form'd us men And when like wand'ring sheep we stray'd, He brought us to his fold again. 3 We'll croud thy gates with thankful songs High as the heav'ns our voices raise; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise. 4 Wide as the world is thy command; Vast as eternity thy love; Firm as a rock thy truth must stand, When rolling years shall cease to move.
