We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Before the throne of God above our Intercessor stands

Representative Text

1 Before the throne of God above
Our Intercessor stands;
Pleads for his own with deathless love,
With pierced and bleeding hands.

2 The barren rocks of Calvary
Echoes his dying cries,
When Christ became, as sin for me,
A wondrous Sacrifice.

3 Not yet may victors' songs be sung
In realms of endless light,
Not yet the notes of triumph rung
By saints all robed in white.

4 Not yet do pilgrims' weary feet
Find sweet abiding rest;
But when redemption is complete,
We'll dwell among the blest.
