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?

1 Let the round world with songs rejoice,
Let heaven return the joyful voice,
All mindful of the Apostles’ fame,
Let heaven and earth their praise proclaim.

2 Ye servants who once bore the light
Of gospel truth o’er heathen night,
Still may your work that light impart,
To glad our eyes and cheer our heart.

3 O God, by whom to them was given
The key that shuts and opens heaven,
Our chains unbind, our loss repair,
And grant us grace to enter there.

4 For at thy will they preached the word
Which cured disease, which health conferred;
O may thy healing power once more
Our souls to grace and health restore.

5 That when as judge thy Son shall come,
To bring his ransomed people home,
He may with them pronounce us blest,
And place us in thine endless rest.

6 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honour, praise and majesty,
Now and throughout eternity. Amen.
