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.

From ancient times I have declared, I am the Lord alone

From ancient times I have declared, I am the Lord alone

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

21. From ancient Times I have declar'd,
I am the Lord alone;
A righteous Lord, thy Saviour God,
Besides me there is none.
22. Then look to me, ye burden'd Souls,
From ev'ry distant Land;
And cordially receive, with Joy,
Salvation at my Hand.

23. I by my self have sworn, my Words
Both true, and righteous are;
That ev'ry Knee to me shall bow,
And ev'ry Tongue shall sware.
24. Sure, Men shall say, we, in the Lord,
Have Strength and Righteousness;
And to him come; but all his Foes
Shall endless Shame oppress.

25. In Thee, Jehovah, Isr'el's Seed
Shall all be justify'd;
In Thee, shall triumph, while on Earth,
In Heav'n be glorify'd.
