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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 In God’s temple a blessing waits,
For all who enter in,
They who pass thru the portals,
Sweet peace and comfort win.

Come, then come to His temple,
Leave worldly plans behind,
Kneel and pray at His altar,
Higher comfort find.
Seek, O seek in His temple
The gift awaiting there,
The blessing holy and wonderful,
Beyond compare.

2 In His temple a glory shines,
More bright than noonday sun,
By that light we are guided,
Until our race is run. [Refrain]

3 In His temple we hear the voice,
That bids us look above,
Bids us trust in the Father
Who watches from above. [Refrain]
