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 How blest and how joyous will be the glad day,
When heart beats to heart in the work of the Lord;
When Christians united shall swell the grand lay,
Divisions all ended, triumphant His word!

Refrain:
O shout the glad word, O hasten the day,
When all of God’s people are one;
O shout the glad word, O hasten the day,
When all of God’s people are one;

2 The prayer of our Savior impels us move on;
Its words are still sounding the call of our king;
And Paul, in devotion, doth echo the song,
I beg you, my brethren, to speak the same thing. [Refrain]

3 Be faithful and true till the warfare is o’er,
Till factions are foiled and the vict’ry is won;
And millions of voices shall blend on the shore,
To welcome us enter our Father’s glad home. [Refrain]
