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

One by One

Representative Text

1 One by one God's faithful workers
Yield their bodies to the foe,
One by one our ranks are thinning,
Where's the end but God doth know;
But, look up! my soul, despond not,
Signs fulfill in earth and sky!
Lift thy head, rejoice! take courage!
Thy redemption draweth nigh!

2 Of this truth now be persuaded,
He who loved us, loves us still;
When we patiently have waited,
Faithfully have done his will,
Then will open wide the portal
To the mansions bright and fair,
And he'll bid us life immortal
With our precious loved ones share.

3 Then our toil will be forgotten,
All our painful vigils past;
Times when Satan almost conquered
Nevermore their shadows cast;
For he's coming! Prince of Glory!
Coming! victory to give!
Ring it out! the rapturous story!
Life eternal! Saints shall live!

4 Death no more can claim God's people--
Graves no more hide from our sight
Those we've loved, esteemed and honored--
Those who've helped us in the fight.
Praise the name of our Redeemer!
Soon the saved beneath the sod
Will, with us, sing Allelulias
In the presence of our God!
