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.
1 Jehovah's image brightly shone
In Eden's lovely pair,
And oft before his gracious throne,
They bowed in praise and prayer.
2 With rectitude, as with a robe,
Their spotless souls were dressed,
With peace abounding, and with joy,
They were divinely blessed.
3 No self-reproach, no slavish dread
Disturbed their peace within;
No frowning storm their path o'erspread,
While undefiled with sin.
4 Thus souls renewed by saving grace--
Whose sins have been forgiven,
Behold the smiles of Jesus' face,
And feel an inward heaven.
