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 In God’s holy dwelling,
Spared to meet again,
Hark! glad voices swelling,
Raise their joyous strain.
Children, bending lowly,
Join the angels’ story cry,
“Holy, holy, holy,
Is the Lord on high!”

2 All things tell His glory—
Earth and heaven above;
And the gospel story
Tells His wondrous love;
How the Father gave us
His own Son to die;
How the Son to save us,
Left His throne on high!

3 Oh, how blest to know Him,
And His love so true!
Oh, how sweet to show Him
How we love Him too!
For to us is given
Here to test His grace,
And the hope in Heaven
To behold His Face.

4 Then within His dwelling,
Raise the joyous song;
Let glad voices swelling
Still the strain prolong;
Children, bending lowly,
Join the angels’ story cry,
“Holy, holy, holy,
Is the Lord on high!”
