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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O blessed fields of Judah,
Which once the Master trod,
The Son of Man so lowly,
And yet the Son of God.
He came with help and healing,
All promise to fulfill,
And He who trod those paths of yore,
Is friend and helper still.

Saviour, we bless Thee and praise Thee,
Ever Thy name adore;
Thou art our help e’er unfailing
As in the days of yore.

2 O sunlit hill of blessing,
Where once the Master taught,
And message from the highest,
To lowly hearted brought.
O sweet the words of promise,
Upon that holy hill,
And He who taught in days of yore,
Is friend and teacher still. [Refrain]

3 O Galilee so holy,
Where in His wondrous love,
He told of life eternal,
In royal realms above.
We too may seek to serve Him,
And do His blessed will,
And He who dwelt in Galilee,
Is friend and helper still. [Refrain]
