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

Come, ye people, come, adore Him

Representative Text

1 Come, you people, come adore him
God in Holy Trinity,
God the Father, Son and Spirit,
ever blessèd unity.

2 All your glory, God almighty,
to the Son and Spirit given,
ere upon the world’s creation
dawned the newborn light of heaven:

3 holy, holy, we adore you
one in power, in nature one;
God the Father, God the Spirit,
God the co-eternal Son.

4 By your Son the wide creation
rose where chaos held its sway;
by the Spirit, God Almighty
swept eternal night away.

5 Son, the Father’s love revealing,
Son, through whom the Spirit came,
blessed Godhead! endless glory
be to your exalted name!
