We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

The Jubilee

Representative Text

1 Hark! the Jubilee is sounding,
O the joyful news is come,
Free salvation is proclaimed
In and through God's only Son.
Now we have an invitation,
To the meek and lowly Lamb,
Glory, honor, and salvation,
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

2 Come, dear friends, and don't neglect it,
Come to Jesus in your prime;
Great salvation, don't reject it,
O receive it, now's your time:
Now the Savior is beginning
To revive his work again.
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

3 Now let each one cease from sinning,
Come and follow Christ the Way;
We shall all receive a blessing,
If from him we do not stray;
Golden moments we've neglected,
O the time we've spent in vain.
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

4 Come, let's run our race with patience,
Looking unto Christ the Lord,
Who doth live and reign for ever,
With his Father and our God:
He is worthy to be praised,
He is our exalted king,
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.

5 Come, dear children, praise your Jesus,
Praise him, praise him evermore.
May his great love now constrain us,
His great name for to adore:
O then let us join together,
Crowns of glory to obtain,
Glory, honor, and salvation;
Christ the Lord is come to reign.
