Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Oh, sing once again the old story,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
We’re ripening, we’re ripening for glory,
Hallelujah to the Lamb.

Praise God, we are ripening for glory,
’Neath the dews and the sun of his love;
Praise God, we are ripening for glory,
And shall rest in his garners above.

2 We are saved from the blasts of repining,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
While the sun of his mercy is shining,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

3 On his glorious promises leaning,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Like a shock fully ripe for the gleaning,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

4 We long for the glorified vision,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
A glimpse of the garner’s elysian,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]

5 When safe in the garners of glory,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
The angels will sing the old story,
Hallelujah to the Lamb. [Refrain]
