We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.
You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.
1 Speed on Thy truth, Eternal One,
Thy holy law proclaim,
Till ev'ry land beneath the sun,
Has heard Jehovah's name.
We own, O Lord, Thy sov'reign pow'r,
And bow before Thy throne,
To sing Thy glories in this hour,
Immortal God alone.
2 Thy truth shall stand, unchanging God,
Long as the ages roll,
Tho' trampled oft where sin has trod,
And error chained the soul.
Arise and shine, ye chosen band,
Ye patient scattered few;
No work so high, so deep, so grand,
Has e'er been given you.
3 We near that hour of calm surcease,
From sorrow, death, and sin,
That brings the weary one release,
And ushers heaven in.
Awake, arise, arise and shine;
Proclaim His truth abroad;
It is thy Saviour's work and thine,
Thou messenger of God.
4 We sing Thy praise, eternal Lord,
Thy glorious truth proclaim;
Thy mandate is a shield and sword,
Thy word a living flame.
Long as the promised years shall roll
Long as eternity
We'll bow to Thy benign control,
And worship only Thee.
