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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Behold, These Words Are Trustworthy and True

Full Text

1. Behold, these words are trustworthy and true,
For God the Lord is making all things new.
He showed His servants what must take place,
The plagues and blessings set for Adam’s race.
Now keep these words, for he who overcomes
Will gain new life and he will be God’s son.

2. Behold, says Jesus, Quick I come again;
Most blest is he who keeps My words made plain.
The time is near; reward is in sight.
So holy stay and always seek the right.
The First, the Last, Beginning and the End,
The Alpha and Omega e’er I am.

3. How blest are those who wash their robes from sin,
That they may to the city enter in
And to the tree of life have full right.
They’ll see God’s face, and He will give them light.
The curse is gone! They’ll reign forevermore
With Jesus, David’s Root, bright Morning Star.

4. The Spirit and the bride of Christ say, Come!
And let each one who hears these words say, Come!
Yea, whosoever thirsts, let him come.
The drink of life is free; let all men come!
Hear Jesus’ words: Quickly I come again.
O come, Lord Jesus, come to us. Amen.
