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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Beautiful upon the mountain
Are the feet of shepherds true,
Who from out the living Fountain
Grace dispense each day anew.
Precious is the peace they offer
In the Savior's own dear name,
Who, for us His life to proffer,
From His throne in heav'n He came.

2 Earthly chains must not enslave him
Who would serve our gracious Lord;
In the strength the Master gave him
He must preach His holy Word,
Gladly bearing pain and sorrow,
Self-forgetful evermore.
Hoping that a brighter morrow
God has kept for him in store.

3 Let him speak to ev'ry nation
Of the Savior's boundless love;
Let him tell of God's salvation,
Of the blissful home above.
Let him comfort hearts that languish
In the throes of sin and pain,
That, relieved from all their anguish,
Peace and rest they may obtain.

4 Be it told to sinners stricken
With the fear of death and hell:
Christ your fainting hearts will quicken
And all mortal fears dispel.
Be it told to those in prison,
Chained by tho'ts of doubt and care:
Christ, Who died, again is risen
And with you His home will share.
