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.

Representative Text

1 Alleluia! thanks and glory,
High adoring praise we bring,
Hearts and voices both uplifted
To our crown'd and conquering King!
Children in the temple prais'd Thee,
Thou the children's praise didst own;
Now let children's praise accepted
Reach thee on Thy radiant throne.

2 Alleluia! King, Redeemer,
Saviour of our Eden lost!
Though but children, sinful children,
We are Thine by priceless cost;
Though but children, weak and wayward,
Yet through Thy redeeming love
Washed, forgiven, sealed for glory,
We shall reign with Thee above.

3 Alleluia! Oh! the mercy!
Oh! the goodness, love, and grace!
Mercy rich, and free, and glorious,
Passing bound of time and space!
Let Thy children sing Hosanna,
Sing and say, in faith divine,
"Such a Saviour, such salvation,
Such eternal joys are mine!"

4 Alleluia! O most holy,
O most patient, O most true,
Ever faithful, all-forgiving,
Still bestowing mercies new!
Day by day has mercy kept us,
Soul and body kept from ill;
Night by night, in peace descending,
Cometh mercy, mercy still.

5 Then to Him, the Found of mercy,
Jesus Christ, the children's King,
Blessing, honour, thanks and glory,
Let His children ever bring.
Let their mighty Alleluia
Fill the earth from shore to shore,
Till with that new song it mingles,
Sung in heaven for evermore!
