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 Behold, array'd in Light
And by Divine Command,
Fair Peace, the Child of Heav'n, descends
To this afflicted Land!
Like the bright Morning Star
She leads a glorious Day,
And o'er this western World extends
Her all reviving Ray.

2 Your Swords to Plough shares turn'd,
Your Fields and Plenty crown'd,
Shall laugh and sing – and Freedom spread
The Voie of Gladness round
Oh, Sing a new made song!
To God your Hymns address,
He rul'd the hearts of mighty Kings,
And gave our Arms Success.

3 He check'd our haughty Foe
And bad the Contest cease, –
"Thus, and no farther, shalt thou go
Be all the World at Peace,
No more shall savage War
Lead on the hostile Band;
No more shall suff'ring Captives mourn
Or Blood pollute the Land."

4 Confess Jehovah's Pow'r
And magnify his Name,
Let all the World with one Accord,
His wondrous work proclaim,
Let us with Hearts devout
Declare what we have seen,
And ot our Children's Children tell
How good the Lord hath been.
