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 the light of truth eternal
I approach my Lord;
I accept his proffered mercy,
Trusting in his word.

Refrain:
Gladly my voice shall echo his praises,
Jesus the King of kings,
Joy in its fullness, peace in abundance,
Unto my heart he brings.

2 Tongue and pen have ne’er depicted
Matchless love divine;
Wondrous thought, sublimer, deeper,
Than we can define. [Refrain]

3 In beholding there the nail prints,
Looking on his side,
Tears of love and joy I mingle,
That for me he died. [Refrain]

4 I have heard his “whosoever,”
And, among that throng,
Will, thro’ one eternal morrow,
Sing redemption’s song. [Refrain]
