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.
1 Let Zion sing her songs of praise,
And to the Lord, glad off'rings bring;
And ev'ry note of music raise,
To God her Saviour and her King.
2 This house which desolate had lain,
By the almighty hand of God!
Is now rebuilt and rais'd again,
And to its former state renew'd.
3 Thanks and praise be to the Lord:
Whose acts of mercy here are pass'd;
This house of pray'r again restor'd,
And holy worships now replac'd.
4 Here may the Lord with glory dwell,
And all his former work renew,
And here make known his gracious will,
And grant us grace to serve him too.
5 Here may his blessed word increase,
And with its former glory shine;
May thousands learn the way of peace,
And feel the work of grace divine!
6 The Lord with grace and mercy crown,
His Zion with his aid and pow'r!
And raise her walls when they are down;
And build his church for evermore.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLXV
