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.

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.
