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

Sing forth with gladsome voice

Representative Text

1 Sing forth with gladsome voice,
With grateful hearts rejoice:
All the world's salvation
Sleeps in a manger-bed,
The hope of ev'ry nation
Laid there His royal head:
Great eternal God!
Great eternal God!

2 O Son of God on high,
For Thee my heart doth sigh;
Fill with consolation
The soul that needs Thy love;
And teach me Thy salvation:
With mercy from above
Draw my heart to Thee!
Draw my heart to Thee!

3 Tho' we were lost in guilt,
His word He has fulfilled;
Destined for perdition
We lay beneath His wrath;
But His great love's compassion
Has opened heaven's path:
There we are at home.
There we are at home.

4 Where is the home of bliss?
It can be only this:
Where the saints are singing
In hymns of loud acclaim,
And their hosannas bringing
All glory to His name:
There we are at home!
There we are at home!
