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 Highly favored congregation,
loved by Jesus and esteemed,
ne’er forget thy destination,
why from this vain world redeemed.

2 Grounded on your Savior’s merit,
blessed in his communion sweet,
destined heaven to inherit,
and the church above to meet.

3 Witness here to all around you
of your Savior’s dying love;
tell them how he sought and found you,
gave you grace from heav'n above.

4 Evidence by word and action
that your faith is not in vain,
that your highest satisfaction
centers in the Lamb once slain.

5 By love’s closest bonds united,
as the Lord’s own family,
be to serve his name excited,
be to him a fruitful tree.
