Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Jesus the meek and lowly
Dwelleth in light on high;
Blessed is he and holy,
Ruler of earth and sky.

Ev’ry knee to him shall bow,
Ev’ry creature and tongue confess
That he is the Lord, the mighty Lord,
Bearing the sceptre of righteousness.

2 He who, despised, afflicted,
Carried our weight of sin,
Opens the gates of glory,
Welcomes the faithful in. [Refrain]

3 He who, alone, in sorrow,
Prayed at the midnight hour,
Weareth a crown eternal
Won by his conqu’ring power. [Refrain]

4 He is the Rock of Ages,
Rock where the soul may hide,
Safe from the storm and tempest,
Over life’s rolling tide. [Refrain]
