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.

He mounts to where the azure shines

He mounts to where the azure shines

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative 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.
