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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

From ancient times I have declared, I am Jehovah, God alone

From ancient times I have declared, I am Jehovah, God alone

Representative Text

21 From ancient times I have declar'd,
I am JEHOVAH, GOD alone,
A righteous God, and Me besides
A saviour is, or can be none.
22 Then look to me ye fainting souls,
In ev'ry place, in ev'ry land;
And ye shall joyfully receive
Salvation at my mighty hand.

23 For I am God, and none besides,
I even by My self have sworn
In righteousness: and now the word
Gone from my mouth, shall not return:
It is, 'that every knee to Me
'Shall bow, and ev'ry tongue shall swear,
24 'And say, that in the LORD alone
'My strength and righteousnesses are:'

Yea all who feel their wretchedness
With humble joy shall come to Him:
But those who with Him are displeas'd,
Shall be distress'd with endless shame.
25 In Thee, JEHOVAH, Isr'els race,
All fully justify'd shall be;
In Thee shall triumph oe'r their foes,
And all be glorify'd in Thee.
