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 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.
