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 “He’s the Chief among ten thousand,”
My Redeemer and my King!
I shall worship and adore Him,
And His praise forever sing.
“He’s the Lily of the valley,”
And the fairest of the fair!
I shall see Him in His glory,
Where the many mansions are.

“He’s the Chief among ten thousand,”
And the fairest of the fair;
I shall see Him in His beauty,
And His image I shall bear.

2 When my earthly course is finished,
And the work of life is done,
When the battle-cry is over,
And the victor’s crown is won;
I shall cast my crown before Him,
I shall walk with Him in white,
Where the silver fountains sparkle,
‘Mid the vales of endless light. [Refrain]

3 I shall see Him in His beauty,
And His hand will wipe away
Every tear of pain and sorrow,
While His gentle voice will say,
“Come, ye blessed of my Father,
To the rest prepared above,”
Where the tree of life is blooming,
In my home of peace and love. [Refrain]
