During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

O come and let us to the Lord Lift up a joyful voice

O come and let us to the Lord Lift up a joyful voice

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O come, and let us to the LORD,
lift up a joyful voice;
And to our rock of safety shout,
and make triumphant noise.
2 Before Him let us early come
with thankfulness and praise;
And with the joyful noise of hymns
aloud our voices raise.

3 Because this God JEHOVAH is,
exceeding great and high;
And a great King above all GODS,
in power and majesty.
4 All the deep caverns in the earth,
are in his mighty hand;
The mountains high in all their strength
are his, and by Him stand.

5 To Him the spacious sea belongs,
because He made the same;
And all the land abroad is his,
for it his hand did frame.

[2 Part]
6 O come, and let us all adore,
bow down, and on Him call;
Come, let us kneel before the LORD,
the maker of us all.
7 Because He is our, God, and we
his pasture's people are;
And of his hand the sheep, if ye
to day his voice will hear;

8 'O let not, as at Meribah,
'hardness your hearts possess,
'As in the day of Massah they
'did in the wilderness.
9 'Where your presumptuous ancestors,
'too boldly tempted Me;
'Where they me prov'd, and where my works
'their wondring eyes did see.

10 'Forty years long I grieved was
'with that rebellious race;
'And said, this people err in heart,
'and will not know my ways.
11 'So that to them I sware in wrath,
'then kindling in my breast;
'That they should never enter in
'my happy place of rest.
