Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Arise, O Lord, our God, arise,
And enter now into Thy rest:
O let this house be Thy abode,
Forever with Thy presence blest.

2 Thy gracious covenant, Lord, fulfill,
Turn not away from us Thy face;
Establish Thou Messiah's throne
And let Him reign within this place.

3 Thy Zion Thou hast chosen, Lord,

And satisfy her poor with bread.

5 Salvation shall adorn her priests,
Her saints shall shout with joy divine,
Messiah's power shall be revealed,
His glory in His Church shall shine.
