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.
1 O Happy where such grace is found,
That works the love of God;
Where souls with charity abound,
To shew itself abroad.
2 This proves the glory of the cause,
For which the Church contends;
Defends the doctrine of the Cross,
On which our hope depends.
3 This hope still bids us to endure,
And patiently to wait:
Till God reveals his love and pow'r
To change our mournful state.
4 Those tribulations and distress,
For Jesus' sake we bear;
They are sure tokens of his grace,
His providence and care.
5 With Christ the Lord shall be reveal'd
With all the Ang'lic Host;
His promises will be fulfill'd,
And none of them be lost.
6 He will reward his suff'ring saints
For all their toil and pain:
Where not a foe or least complaint,
Shall trouble them again.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CXLIX
