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.

Representative Text

1 Heir of a mighty King, heir to a throne,
Why art thou wandering sad and alone?
Heir to the love of God, heir to his grace,
Rise to the privilege, claiming thy place.

Heirs! we are joint-heirs with Jesus our Lord!
Heirs of the covenant, found in his word!
Rise to thy privilege, heir to his grace!
Heir to the love of God, Rise, claim thy place.

2 Heir of a Conqueror, why dost thou fear?
Foes cannot trouble thee when he is near;
Child of the promises, be not oppressed,
Claim what belongs to thee, find sweetest rest. [Refrain]

3 Heir of the King of kings, never repine,
Talk not of poverty, riches are thine;
Heir of the Holy One, canst thou not see
Treasures unbounded are waiting for thee. [Refrain]

4 Heir by inheritance! child of thy God!
Right to thy sonship is found in his word;
Walk with the noble ones, never alone;
Prince of the Royal Blood come to thy throne. [Refrain]
