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.

Representative Text

1 The kingdoms of earth pass away one by one,
But the kingdom of Heaven remains;
It is built on a rock, and the Lord is its king,
And forever and ever He reigns.

It shall stand, it shall stand,
Forever and ever and ever;
It shall stand; it shall stand;
It shall stand; it shall stand;
Forever and ever,
Amen and Amen.

2 The tempest may rage and the hurricane roar,
Yea, the wind and the torrents descend,
And the strong gates of hell may assail it in vain,
For the kingdom shall stand till the end. [Refrain]

3 The kingdom of God is now open to all,
Even the vilest may now enter in;
There’s a welcome for all who will turn to the Lord,
Full salvation and pardon for sin. [Refrain]
