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 Forty days on earth He spent
Since glad Easter day,
Then from His Apostles' sight
Jesus pass'd away;
Evermore th' Incarnate Son
Sits on God the Father's Throne.

2 "Lift your heads, Eternal gates,"
So the Angels sing;
"Everlasting doors, make way
For the Glorious King!"
Satan's power is overthrown,
Christ the Victor reigns alone!

3 With the Angels we, O Lord,
Songs of triumph raise;
With the twelve, at Bethany,
Up to Heaven we gaze;
Soon Thou wilt return--may be
Watch with joy to welcome Thee!
