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

Representative Text

1. Lord, in love Thou didst receive us,
Ere creation as Thine own.
And that love will never leave us,
But will raise us to Thy throne.
Thou wilt come, and we shall meet Thee;
Then the saints whom Thou wilt raise,
Will with those remaining greet Thee,
Joining in the song of praise.

2. Then shall we, Thine image bearing,
Know Thee, Lord, as we are known;
With our blood-washed robes, declaring
What for us Thy death hath done.
Thus we all our joys expressing,
Shall for ever praise Thy name,
Glory, power, dominion, blessing,
Be to God and to the Lamb.
