Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Gabriel's message does away

Full Text

1. Gabriel's message does away
Satan's curse and Satan's sway,
out of darkness brings our Day:

Refrain:
so, behold,
all the gates of heaven unfold.

2. He that comes despised shall reign;
he that cannot die, be slain;
death by death its death shall gain: (Refrain)

3. Weakness shall the strong confound;
by the hands, in grave clothes wound,
Adam's chains shall be unbound. (Refrain)

4. Art by art shall be assailed;
to the cross shall Life be nailed;
from the grave shall hope be hailed: (Refrain)
