Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the far better land of glory and light,
The ransomed are singing in garments of white;
The harpers are harping, and all the bright train
Sing the song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.

2 Like the sound of the sea swells their chorus of praise,
Round the star circled crown of the Ancient of Days,
And thrones and dominions re-echo the strain
Of the glory eternal, to Him that was slain.
To Him, to Him, to Him that was slain,
To Him, to Him, to Him that was slain.

3 Dear Savior, may we with our voices so faint,
Sing the chorus celestial with angel and saint?
Oh, yes! we will sing, and Thine ear we will gain
In the song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.

4 Now, children, and teachers, and friends all unite,
In a loud hallelujah with the ransomed in light;
To Jesus we’ll sing that melodious strain,
The song of redemption, the Lamb that was slain.
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain,
The Lamb, the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain.
