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 Babel’s walls, so long obscuring
All the ways of truth and right,
Crumble now before the shining
Of the glorious evening light.

Refrain:
Babel’s fallen, hallelujah!
Hear the saints in chorus sing;
From the summit of Mount Zion,
Hear their glad hosannas ring.

2 Now are Zion’s walls erected,
And her watchmen fear the Lord;
From the heights of full salvation
Loud proclaim His holy word. [Refrain]

3 Oft they told us that no mortal
Could enjoy this perfect peace;
But we’ve found a full fruition,
And the year of sweet release. [Refrain]

4 Hail the day of heav’nly freedom!
Though so long has been the night,
Brighter seems the radiant splendor
As we reach the evening light. [Refrain]
