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 Jesus our Lord to heav'n is gone,
And sits at God's right hand!
Where angels, him their sovereign own,
And are at his command.
2 Lo he ascends with pow'r and might,
To heav'n from whence he came--
And there he reigns in glorious light,
And angels praise his name.
3 For that he once himself abas'd,
And died to set us free;
He is by all in heaven prais'd,
And will for ever be.
4 Once more on earth he is to come,
To judge the human race
And take his ransom'd people home,
To know his pow'r and grace.
