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.

The Lord is near, with Sinai tread

The Lord is near, with Sinai tread

Author: Alexander Clark
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The Lord is near! with Sinai trend
He comes to earth again;
From sudden darkness overhead,
A tongue of lightning, clear and dread,
Enough to wake the dusty dead,
Proclaims God's will to men.

2 Oh, bleeding country, now arise,
And call upon the Lord;
Thy broken heart and tearful eyes
Win pity on thee from the skies,
Through Christ, the world's slain sacrifice,
Who saves thee by his word.

3 Thou God of nations, hear our prayer;
We lift our thoughts to thee;
Our sinful nation's life, oh spare!
And may our grief thy grace declare,
By every Christly cross we bear
To bless and make men free.
