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

He mounts to where the azure shines

He mounts to where the azure shines

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

He mounts to where the azure shines,
Triumphant as the light;
Till, past the glowing gates, the Christ
Is lost to mortal sight.

And now, amid the bliss of heaven,
The Father's throne He shares;
And gems of radiant beauty deck
The sparkling crown He wears.

Remember, Lord, Thy promise made
When hearts in sadness pined,
And send the Comforter to soothe
The sorrows of mankind;

94
And as the lingering ages pass,
To teach the souls of men
That they may hail the Christ when He
In glory comes again.

All praise to Thee, Eternal God,
And to the Son be given,
Whose glory, darkly veiled on earth,
Now fills the light of heaven;

And to the Holy Comforter,
By whom our lives are blest,
Be praise, by every waiting heart,
For evermore expressed.
