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.

The voice of many angels

Representative Text

1 I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne;
A multitude no man could number,
Singing unto God;
And all within the highest heaven,
All upon the earth,
Gave blessing, pow'r and honor
Unto the Lamb.

Chorus:
Blessing and honor, glory and pow'r (pow'r be unto Him)
be unto Him that sitteth on the throne,
and unto the Lamb forever and ever,
Amen, (Amen,) and Amen.
Blessing and honor, glory and pow'r
be unto HIm that sitteth on the throne,
and unto the Lamb forever and ever
Amen and Amen, Amen!

3 Angels in garments pure and spotless,
There before the throne,
All nations, kindred, tongues and people
Swelled the holy song,
And falling down upon their faces,
Worshipped God the Lord,
All praise to Him ascribing,
And to the Lamb. [Chorus]
