Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Come in, Thou blessèd, honored Lord!
By earth, by Heav’n, by all, adored!
We hail Thee, welcome!
Take Thy throne, and in Thy Zion reign alone.

2. Our only Lord and God Thou art!
Reign Thou the Sovereign of our hearts,
Thou King of glory ever blest,
By angels and by men confessed.

3. Thy Church now enter, Lord divine;
And be the kingdom ever Thine;
We hail Thee welcome to Thy seat,
And lay our honors at Thy feet.

4. O happy Church, thy bliss how great;
The King, in all His heav’nly state,
With thee forever will reside:
Thy Husband He and thou the bride.

5. O Lord! our grateful hearts rejoice,
Since Thou hast made our souls Thy choice;
While here our songs to Thee shall rise,
And join the chorus of the skies.
