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 let thy servant now depart
Into thy promis'd rest;
Since my expecting eyes have been
With thy salvation bless'd;

2 Which till this time thy favour'd saints
And prophets only knew,
Long since prepar'd, but now set forth
in all the peoples view.

3 A light, to shew the heathen world
The way to saving grace,
Also the light and glory both
Of Isr'el's chosen race.

4 To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God, whom we adore,
Be glory, as it was,is now,
And shall be ever more.
