Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

The saints appear to tread the courts

Representative Text

1 The saints appear to tread the courts
Of their dear God below;
Behold the multitude resorts
To hear the trumpet blow.

2 Lord God appear for our relief,
What can we do alone!
Come Savior, banish unbelief
And take us for thine own.

3 Our eyes O Lord, are unto thee,
Assist us, Lord, we pray;
O may thy Spirit present be!
O Lord, thy power display.

4 Jesus, let us thy gospel hear,
Teach us to know thy voice;
Make every stubborn sinner fear,
And all thy saints rejoice.

5 Come Lord, nor let us be dismayed;
Lord, hear thy people pray;
And let thy mercy be displayed
Amongst us here this day.

6 May sinners hear thy powerful call
And thy salvation see;
So shall our hearts, both one and all,
Sing songs of praise to thee.
