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 Rejoice ye in the Lord!
Ye christians one and all,
Rejoice ye in his sacred word,
Obey his blessed call.
2 Be ye possess'd with love,
Affectionate and kind,
Endow'd with graces from above
And the bless'd Saviour's mind.
3 The Lord himself is nigh,
Who careth for your cares,
Your ev'ry wants he will supply
And hear your humble pray'rs.
4 Our pray'rs and our request
He certainly will hear,
Each cross will serve to make us bless'd,
That here on earth we bear.
5 Eternal joy and peace
Shall ever more be giv'n,
When we possess such life and grace
We taste the joys of heav'n.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.) #XV
