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.

1 All hail to Thee, Emanuel!
All hail! All hail!
Thy word in heav'n, Thy pow'r on earth shall never, never fail,
Shall never, never fail.

Emanuel! Emanuel!
The host of heav'n and earth's redeemed
Thy glories ever tell;
With Thee, the saints who persevere
shall evermore in glory dwell,
All hail! All hail, Emanuel!

2 All hail to Thee, Emanuel!
All hail! All hail!
Thy name against the strength of sin forever shall prevail,
Forever shall prevail. [Refrain]

3 All hail to Thee, Emanuel!
All hail! All hail!
The strong desire of hosts of sin shall be of no avail,
Shall be of no avail! [Refrain]
