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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. On, like the true and brave;
In Him, the strong to save,
Our boast shall be;
The world for Christ we sing,
Our high exalted King,
Whose praise from all shall ring
O’er land and sea.

2. Firm as the hills above
Nor time or change can move,
His Word shall be;
Where sin and death abound,
His truth shall yet resound,
And all shall hear the sound
O’er land and sea.

3. Soon shall He come to reign,
And from the tyrant’s chain
The world set free;
On realms of deepest night,
The beams of Gospel light
Shall rise in splendor bright
O’er land and sea.
