Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Like Thousand Mountains Brightly Crowned

Representative Text

1 Like thousand mountains brightly crowned,
With groves of swaying pans around,
We see a throng of ev'ry tongue
In snow-white mantles gowned.
These are the heroes who did go
Through prawns and trials here below,
The Lamb of God has with His blood
Their robes made white as snow.
In heaven now His face they see
In never-ending jubilee
Where angels sing Before the King
The sweetest symphony.

2 Their earthly lot was shame and scorn,
But now behold them bright as morn,
In priestly gowns, with golden crowns,
And glory heaven-born.
The world did often them dismay
And tears would flow by night and day,
But God by grace in His embrace
Has wiped all tears away.
And now they find where life is best
Eternal joy with hearts at rest;
The Lamb so dear At fountains clear
In Host as well as Guest.

3 Now, hail to you, bright heroes bold,
The saints just gone, the saints of old,
That unto death ye kept the faith
And passed away consoled!
Ye counted earthly pleasures cheap,
With tears ye sowed and now ye reap
The golden grain and see your gain.
With gladness strong and deep.
Lift up your voice and wave
"All honor be Eternally
To God and to the Lamb!"
