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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Homoj de l' galilea land'

Full Text

1. Homoj de l' galilea land',
kian vizion vidis vi
kiam sur via sankta ter'
paŝis glorinda la Mesi'?
L'Estro de vivo kaj de mort'
venis al vi kun sava vort'.

2. "Gloron ne vidis ni ĉe Li
Ŝajnis Li ja mirinda hom'!
Ĉarmis Li nin per Sia grac',
vokis al Si en Dia nom'.
Daŭre dum vivo ĝis la mort',
regis Lin elĉiela fort'."

3. Mia Savanto, Estro, Reĝ',
min anstataŭis en dolor'.
Kiel anĝeloj en ĉiel',
tiel mi kantas kun ador':
Savis Li min de pek' kaj mort',
vivo eterna mia sort'!
