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

Representative Text

1 Hallelujah, song of gladness,
Song of everlasting joy;
Hallelujah, song the sweetest
That can angel hosts employ.

Praise ye the Lord, sweet peace He gave me;
Praise ye the Lord, He died to save me;
Praise His name, He’ll never leave me;
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

2 Hallelujah, church victorious,
Thou may’st raise this joyful strain;
Hallelujah, songs of triumph
Well befit the ransom’d train. [Refrain]

3 Hallelujah, let our voices
Rise to Heav’n with full accord;
Hallelujah, ev’ry moment,
Brings us nearer to the Lord. [Refrain]

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 >
