Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 The Fullness which the World affords,
The Earth and People are the LORD's;
By him assign'd their Habitation:
Establish'd on teh Seas it stands,
The Floods by his Almighty Hands,
For ever fixt a sure Foundation.

2 Oh! who shall to that Hill ascend,
And low before thy Footstool bend;
Where thou, O LORD, hast chose thy Dwelling?
The Man whose Hands and Heart are free,
From Blood, Deceit and Perjury.
The Man in Purity excelling.

3 This is the Man, to whom the LORD,
His saving Blessings will afford;
And whom he'll crown with his Salvation;
by such alone his Courts are trod,
Who seeks the Face of Jacob's GOD;
The happy chosen Generation.

4 Erect your Head, O Zion's Gate!
Unfold to entertain in State,
Receive your King in Might abounding,
Who is this King of Glory, who?
'Tis he who triumphs o'er the foe,
Their Ranks and Ruin wide confounding.

5 Lift up your Heads, ye Gates unfold!
Eternal Gates, ye Doors of old,
Receive your King, for Might renowned.
Say, who that glorious King can be?
Behold! the Lord of Hosts is he,
The GOD who comes with Glory crowned.
