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

Full Text

1. Herald, in the wilderness,
Breaking up the road,
Sinking mountains, raising plains,
For the path of God;

2. Prophet, to the multitudes
Calling to repent,
In the way of righteousness
Unto Israel sent;

3. Messenger, God’s chosen one
Foremost to proclaim,
Proffered titles passing by,
Pointing to the Lamb.

4. Captive, for the word of truth
Boldly witnessing;
Then in Herod’s dungeon cave,
Faint and languishing;

5. Martyr, sacrificed to sin
At that feast of shame;
As his life foreshowed the Lord,
In his death the same—

6. Holy Jesus, when He heard,
Went apart to pray:
Thus may we our lesson take
From his saint today.
