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.

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

Hail the God of our salvation

Representative Text

1 Hail the God of our salvation
Triumph in redeeming love;
Let us with glad exultation
Imitate the blest above.

2 Light of those whose dreary dwelling
Border'd on the shades of death,
He hath by his grace revealing,
Scatter'd all the clouds beneath.

3 Father thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love thou art;
Hail the God of our salvation,
Praise him ev'ry thankful heart.

4 Joyfully on earth adore him,
Till in heaven we take our place,
There enrapture'd, fall before him,
Lost in wonder, love and praise.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
