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

Hark, what triumphant strains are these

Hark, what triumphant strains are these

Full Text

1 Hark! what triumphant strains are these,
Which echo through the vault of heaven?
"To Jesus once on Calvary slain,
The kingdoms of the earth are given."

2 Hark! the new song before the throne,
Which only the redeem'd can raise;
Angels may tune their golden harps,
But cannot reach these notes of praise.

3 They worship our exalted Lord,
And hail him universal King;
But saints--the purchase of his blood,
Can strike a sweeter, nobler string.

4 The wonders of his dying love.
Their hallelujahs loud proclaim,
While with ecstatic joy they shout
New honors to his sacred name.

5 From every kindred, every tongue,
From barbarous nations long unknown,
From polish'd Greeks and Scythians rude,
A countless host surround the throne.

6 In robes of spotless white array'd,
And palms of victory in their hand,
With holy wonder and delight,
The trophies of his grace they stand.

7 And still till time shall be mo more,
The mighty concourse shall increase;
And Jesus gain, in heathen lands,
New subjects of the reign of peace.
