Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Thy Mansion Is the Christian's Heart

Author: William Cowper Hymnal: Rejoice in the Lord #505 (1985) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Biblical Characters Amalek; Biblical Characters David; Biblical Characters Jacob; Biblical Characters Moses Lyrics: 1 Thy mansion is the Christian’s heart; let all but thoughts of thee depart! A Lord, thy dwelling place prepare; what peace shall reign when thou art there! 2 Prayer makes the darkened cloud withdraw; prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw, gives exercise to faith and love, bring ev'ry blessing from above. 3 Restaining prayer, we cease to fight; prayer keeps the Christian's armor bright; and Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees. 4 When Moses stood with arms spread wide, success was found on Israel's side; but when through weariness they failed, that moment Amalek prevailed. 5 O Lord, increase our faith and love, that we may all thy goodness prove, and gain from thy exhaustless store the fruits of prayer forevermore.

Ask the saved of all the race who have found his favour. 2 Angels sang about his birth, wise Men sought and found him; heaven’s star shone brightly forth, glory all around him. Shepherds saw the wondrous sight, heard the angels singing; all the plains were lit that night, all the hills were ringing. 3 Gentle Mary laid her child lowly in a manger; he is still the undefiled, but no more a stranger. Son of God of humble birth, beautiful the story; praise his name in all the earth; hail the King of glory! Languages: English Tune Title: GENTLE MARY

See, the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph

Author: Christopher Wordsworth Hymnal: Rejoice in the Lord #334 (1985) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: Biblical Characters Elijah; Biblical Characters Enoch; Biblical Characters Joshua Lyrics: 1 See, the Conqu'ror mounts in triumph, see the King in royal state riding on the clouds, his chariot to his heav'nly palace gate; Hark! the choirs of angel voices joyful Alleluias sing and the portals high are lifted to receive their heav'nly King. 2 Who is he that comes in glory with the trump of jubilee? Lord of battles, God of armies, he has gained the victory. He who on the cross did suffer, he who from the grave arose, he has vanquished sin and Satan, he by death has spoiled his foes. 3 While he lifts his hands in blessing he is parted from his friends; while their eager eyes behold him, he upon the clouds ascends; he who walked with God and pleased him, preaching truth and doom to come, he, our Enoch, is translated to his everlasting home. 4 Now our heav'nly Aaron enters with his blood within the veil; Joshua now is come to Canaan, and the kings before him quail. Now he plants the tribes of Israel in their promised resting place, now our great Elijah offers double portion of his grace. 5 He has raised our human nature on the clouds to God's right hand; there we sit in heav'nly places, there with thee in glory stand; Jesus reigns, adored by angels, mighty Lord, in thine Ascension we by faith behold our own. Scripture: Luke 24:50 Languages: English Tune Title: EBENEZER
