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.

Representative Text

1 O songs of faith that pilgrims sing!
To you our hearts forever cling;
You guide us where the saints have trod,
You lead us to the throne of God.

O music soft! O music sweet!
Borne upward by your song;
Tho’ storms of time around us beat,
The weakest heart grows strong.

2 O songs of love that angels sing!
What peace and joy your sweet notes bring;
They float so sweetly down the way
That leads us up to endless day.

O music soft! O music sweet!
With heaven in the strain;
Our waiting ears your sweet songs greet,
They calm our weary pain.

3 And now, O joy! at last, at last
The years of toil and woe are past,
And Zion’s golden gate appears;
We pass for aye from grief and tears.

O music soft! O music sweet!
We lay our burden down
For evermore at Jesus’ feet,
And there receive our crown.
