Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 I love to think of the ransom’d throng,
I love to think of the joyful song;
The song of praise in the courts above,
The wondrous song of redeeming love.

Refrain:
Saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
Saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb.
I love to think of the joyful song,
Saved, saved thro’ the blood of the Lamb.

2 I love to think of the martyrs grand
Who pass’d thro’ life to the promised land,
Now chanting praise to their Savior King;
O sweet indeed is the song they sing. [Refrain]

3 I love to think of the robe and crown,
Of those at home with the cross laid down
Before the throne of the great I Am,
With songs of praise to the blessed Lamb. [Refrain]

4 I love to think of that wondrous clime,
I love to think of the scene sublime,
Where thro’ the Lamb I may join that throng
And sing with them that triumphant song. [Refrain]
